I've been looking to buy a house in 75093 area. Very interested in Castlemere and Windhaven community at Windhaven Pkwy and Willow Bend Dr. Did some research online and noticed that the government will be building a park called Windhaven Meadows Park nearby, claimed to be the biggest park in Plano. See this link http://www.plano.gov/DocumentCenter/View/2735

My questions are:
1. Anyone has any information when this park will be open? I drove by the other day and there was no sign of construction.
2. Does the park affect the house value in the neighborhood nearby like Castlemere and Windhaven? I heard some people say the park is good but I am worried it will bring more traffic in this area which may lower the house value.

Thank you!

First time heard about it ... Based on the plan you linked, the driveway entrance is "gated" without parking spaces planned; then, it would be more reserved to the local residents within jogging distance.

The May 5th Planning packet has some details on expenditures. Note that in this document, the park is referred to by it's previous name "White Rock Community Park" on page 18. Going by this, I would say that Phase 1 of the master plan is scheduled to be complete by the end of 2017.

In my opinion, it is going to be a wonderful park. Not as large as Oak Point or Arbor Hills, but of similar theme. I would think it would be perceived as a benefit to nearby neighborhoods in the same way those other two parks are.

The Castlemere/Windhaven area is ideal in it's proximity to DNT, 121, 190, schools, Muelhenbeck Rec Center, restaurants and the metroplex in general. I think the park is only going to be another benefit, rather than a disadvantage due to traffic. Especially because the driving entrance is on Windhaven, rather than adjacent to those neighborhoods.

There is considerable parking in the north entrance of the park off Windhaven.

That's a nice addition for the area though they don't have any shortage of parks and trails but after all they are the chosen ones in Collin county.

I do like it that Plano is trying to connect all their trails. They recently bought Los Rios Golf Course and once the lease is over then they are turning it into a public park and connect it with other trails on east side. I
