Buckhorn Park in Plano

Location: 3601 Mission Ridge in Plano, next to Wells
Elementary School. Park in the shared lot by the school.

Best for: Families with kids of many ages. There are
multiple ways to play in this park, which reopened last fall

after a year of renovations. The new tree house-inspired
playground has a play set for younger kids with two setsof racing slides and an area for older children with largehill-like climbing structures. Multiple kiddos can hop onthe large round swing at the same time, or run around theopen grassy area, baseball practice field or basketball court.

For your convenience: Huge canopies that provideplenty of shade cover most of the playground. Several picnicbenches are situated around the park and in the centerof the playground so you can see all your littles playing atthe same time.

Safety: Watch out for open electrical boxes that are
within kids’ reach on several posts throughout the playarea. Also, keep in mind that the playground can get very
busy as the school often uses it for recess
