Plano Memorial Park
Plano Memorial Park located at Spring Creek Parkway and Custer Rd. is currently closed for a construction project to add a Donor Recognition Plaza which will offer a way for residents to honor active duty military members and veterans of the U.S. military. The new looped trail will include a plaza, seating area and about 8,000 brick pavers available for residents to purchase to recognize those who have served with the U.S. Armed Forces. The project also includes new pavements, trees, a seating area, and a new sculptural element. The estimated completion date is before Memorial Day 2023.

Group Outings
Three of Plano’s four walkable entertainment destinations are located right outside the doors of their respective hotels (Legacy West, Shops at Legacy, and The Boardwalk at Granite Park) that incorporate high-end retail and dining, as well as nightlife and live music.

Across from the Hilton Dallas/Plano Granite Park sits a restaurant park called The Boardwalk at Granite Park where visitors enjoy eateries featuring cuisine from gourmet biscuits to California-style street food and even a local brewery. This walkable nightlife destination also features a waterside live entertainment stage.

Named one of the top 10 Best Downtowns in America by, the Downtown Plano Arts District offers a charming setting for a simple stroll, a unique dining and nightlife experience, an afternoon of shopping, or an evening’s entertainment in McCall Plaza. Plano is making a name for itself in the art community.

Shoppers won’t want to miss Legacy West. This “city within a city” is the largest mixed use destination in North Texas and the perfect place to play, shop, dine, and stay. Legacy West’s shopping offerings run the gamut from fashion to furnishings to cosmetics and even cars. (Think Tesla!) Its luxury retailers include: CHANEL Fragrance & Beauty, Golden Goose, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Tiffany & Co, and Tory Burch. At Legacy West diners can satisfy every craving, whether for steak or a good old-fashioned milk shake, French bistro fare, a perfect plate of pasta, or Spanish tapas. After a day of retail therapy, shoppers won’t have to go very far to set down their spoils, since this urban village is anchored by the new Renaissance Dallas at Plano Legacy West Hotel. The 15 story, 304-room luxury property features a high energy lobby and bar, and an on-site Asian fusion restaurant.

The Shops at Legacy is a large urban village with a mélange of restaurants, nightlife, spa and beauty services, an Angelika Film Center and boutiques anchored by the Marriott at Legacy Town Center.
