[ARCHIVED] Designs Revealed for Allen’s Next Neighborhood Park


Allen’s newest park will pack loads of fun in less than an acre of space.

 Windridge Park will soon occupy the corner of Cambridge Drive and Hanover Drive. The City of Allen took ownership of the lots after a fire destroyed one of the homes there.

Allen Parks & Recreation staff asked Windridge neighbors to help brainstorm ideas for the space during a “Pop Up Park” event in November 2015. The final design includes slides, swings, a pavilion and a small sport court.

Allen City Council approved $413,879 for the park’s construction during the July 11 meeting. Allen Community Development Corporation will cover $280,000 of the cost. The park is expected to open in early 2018.
