12 awesome outdoor playgrounds in Collin County

Whenever we have nice weather it’s fun to take kids to a great outdoor playground. This can really benefit you as a Mom!

The kids can run off some steam and then hopefully sleep well that night. Isn’t that what we are always wanting??

Lucky for us we have so many wonderful playgrounds around our area. Here’s a look at the 12 awesome outdoor playgrounds in Collin County.

Haggard Park

Address: 901 E 15th Street, Plano, TX 75074

Located in downtown Plano, this park has so much to offer. They hold so many family-friendly events throughout the year here as well. On-site, they also have a gazebo, pond, and it’s also home to Interurban Railway Museum.  Restrooms are on location next to the playground area and the DART station is within walking distance from this park too.

This area also makes one of our top places to take outdoor photos!

Big Lake Park

Address: 3800 Rainier Road, Plano, TX 75023

Jack Carter Park

Address: 2800 Maumelle Drive, Plano, TX 75023

Jack Carter Park

Plano’s newest park that just opened in April of 2017. It’s an all-abilities park meaning it’s great for kids all types of kids- even kids in wheelchairs. There’s several tables that are covered, a sand volleyball court, and nice trails nearby. Restrooms are on location.

Bob Woodruff Park

Address: 2601 San Gabriel Drive, Plano, TX 75074

This is a great place to pack a picnic and spend several hours. There’s a nice play area and a large pond with a bike trail around it. This makes a great place to watch the fireworks in the summer time!!

Arbor Hills Nature Preserve Park

Address: 3800 Rainier Road, Plano, TX 75023

Another great place to go and spend the entire day. If you love to be outside with the kids this is an awesome place to be! This park has over 200 acres! Jogging, biking, hiking, and more, this is a beautiful spot in Plano.

Take a picnic or go spend a few fun hours in nature.

    Do any of these parks have shaded playgrounds? I feel like that is critical in Texas, yet most of the parks I’ve been to don’t.
