The city’s parks and hike and bike trails are managed by the Parks Development Department. This department is responsible for the planning, design and construction management of parks, trails, park facilities and open space within the city. The funding for the acquisition, design and construction of our parks and park facilities comes from a combination of developer contributions, grants, McKinney Development Corporation money and bond elections.
Our hike and bike trails, which are shown in more detail on the trails link below, are built primarily through the development process. For this reason a trails plan can take many years to implement. Any proposed trails that are located on city property are funded and constructed by the city and through grant money.
