Plano's parks and open spaces are popular respites for pets and people alike. Unless they are inside a dog park enclosure, all dogs must be kept on a leash per City Ordinance. This is for the safety of both the dog and park visitors. If you see an unleashed dog in our parks, please call the Plano Animal Shelter immediately at (972) 769-4360.

Know the Doggie Doo's and Don'ts of Plano's parks at www.plano.gov/405/Parks-Trails. Thank you for doing your part to help keep these areas safe for all to enjoy! 🐶🧘‍♀️🚴 Live Green in Plano City of Plano, Texas Government

Flashback a couple of years ago to one of our most beloved community events 🎅 Breakfast with Santa at Carpenter Park Recreation Center is a morning of tasty treats, festive music, and holiday crafts, and has been entertaining families for many years.

I'm trying to figure out how my Dad can get his flu and pneumonia shots this year without having to go into a store or doctors office. I was wondering if the Sam Johnson 50+ Center would be interested in setting up a drive up event for the seniors to get their annual flu or pneumonia shots from their cars. Do you think enough seniors would be interested in this?
Hello friends at Plano Parks and Rec. Want to thank whoever had the wonderful idea to let more areas within the city go wild. It's a truly wonderful idea, on every level, and I applaud the thinking and motivation and everything behind it. And, I want to offer a suggestion - The Cottonwood Greenbelt, particularly the open field just North of Park could let a lot more go back to the wild. There is also a baseball backstop which literally never gets used for anything which could be removed, and half or more of that field could be allowed to go wild. Thank you so much!
Thank you Plano Parks & Recreation for the new drinking fountain/bottle filler on Chisolm Trail, close to Orlando! Bella Boles gives it two thumbs up!
We go to exercise by "walking" in the water at the Plano Aquatic Center on Tues and Thurs, the staff is very friendly and we appreciate their help
Our nonprofit, operating from Plano, TX, provides menstrual products (pads, wipes, etc.) to underserved women and girls. With your help, we could donate to even more people in need. Please visit our page and if possible donate to our GoFundMe! Even $1 would help our cause.

What is the status of the girls softball tournament in Plano....Angels for Autism???
The blind turns like the one in the photo above on the Legacy Trail are extremely dangerous. I was waking towards the bridge, a cyclist came in full speed from behind. As I was walking he moved to left side only to find a lady cyclist coming towards us. He almost hit her at that high speed. It could have been nasty for both of them. I missed heartbeat and can’t imagine what the cyclist lady went through! There needs to be a line marked at the center of the trail on such turns and warning signs for 1)not to go beyond line to the other side (for oncoming cyclists and walkers / runners. 2) avoid maneuvering blind turns at high speed. Thank you. 🙏
