News Update Construction on Hope Park begins: Accessible playground will open May 11

Star Local News News Update Construction on Hope Park begins: Accessible playground will open May 11.

Hope Park is an accessible playground that’s been years in the making, and today that project is finally starting to take shape physically.



Today the organizing committee of Hope Park is kicking off a two-week, community-driven construction of the playground, which is located in Frisco Commons, 8000 McKinney Road. Volunteers for construction as well as donations are still in need, however.

The park’s organizers have already raised about $665,000 of the $674,000 necessary to pay for the park (Frito-Lay donated $10,000 Wednesday on top of thousands it’s already donated), putting them within striking distance of their funding requirement. All the funding has been raised in about a year and a half.

Hope Park’s grand opening is scheduled for 11 a.m. May 11. For more information about Hope Park or to apply to volunteer during build week, visit www.hopeparkfrisco.org.
