nbcdfw.com: Is a Deck Park Over the Dallas North Tollway in Plano’s Future?
Proposed park to connect Legacy Town Center and Legacy West
The Plano City Council considered the latest Parks and Recreation Department Master Plan during a public hearing on Monday night. The plan lays out the long-term needs and goals for the city’s park system. The plan also introduces some big ideas, including a deck park over the Dallas North Tollway at Legacy Drive.
“The Dallas North Tollway is a little bit of a barrier between the Legacy Town Center and Legacy West,” said Plano’s Director of Parks and Recreation, Robin Reeves. “How could you make that better? How could you make a connection between those two?”
Reeves said the idea was in the very early stages. It doesn’t even have a price tag yet and would require buy in from the Texas Department of Transportation, the North Texas Tollway Authority, developers, the city council and voters.
Amanda D’Antonio, who lives in Plano, said the idea of a future deck park would be an exciting one. “[The area] just brings a lot of people. Everything is walking distance and I think it would connect shops at Legacy West to the other side of Legacy,” D’Antonio said.
