McKinney TX - Bike the Bricks

Le Tour de France McKinney – otherwise known as Bike the Bricks is coming Friday, May 23rd!

For those who have not yet seen this race… it is for big prizes, super-fast paced & exciting (think 500+ racers & speeds in the 40mph range on a relatively short course)  - now if only they had an Adult Big-Wheel Race option.

Hope to see you there!

Frisco - Southeast Community Park Expansion!

by Christie Cannon

Frisco's Southeast Community Park, also known as Harold Bacchus Park (or the baseball park), has had the most recent round of expansion approved!  While last years Master Plan has not yet been fully realized (where are our sand volleyball courts!), the current expansion will offer additional acreage, extend the Taychas Trail (hike & bike) to the West Rowlett Creek Trail , create new ball fields, additional parking, playgrounds, & pavilions. Equally important - the new expansion will directly tie the community of Lawler Park (a favorite of mine!) to the massive park to the north.  

Additional plans and information can be found clicking here!

 

Windsong Ranch in Prosper - Coming Soon!

by Christie Cannon

 

If you have not yet seen it... you have likely heard about it..  Prosper's latest & greatest coming community - Windsong Ranch  is preparing now for their full grand opening.  With major local & national builders (Highland HomesHuntington HomesDreesDavid Weekley HomesDarling Homes, & Chesmar), 600+ acres of greenspace - with tennis, ponds, pools, fitness, community cafes (with wife & all the perks), hike & bike trails, & more "hidden" surprises - this community is poised to be a major draw for buyers.  Having a location just north of 380, & combined with some of DFW's best builders, this community stands ready to add even more momentum to Prosper's already booming new home construction. The Terra Verde Group is one of the key groups behind this project; they are a company with deep experience in mixed-use development (such as CityPlace in Dallas), as well as more traditional Master-Planned communities - they combine this with a solid background in the planning & development of a huge number of Resort & Golf properties (from Angel Fire to the Dove Mountain Ritz Carrolton).
