Cottonwood Park is ready for its big reveal.
The city will mark a significant, $3-million “refresh” on Saturday for the popular McKinney park with a grand reopening.
According to Denise Lessard, media and communications manager for the city, the city upgraded park facilities with a $3.175 million investment.
The project added a shaded basketball court, two pavilions, two play structures, swings, a splash feature, food truck parking with streetscape seating/furniture, new lighting, a parking lot, pedestrian paths and an open play area, she said.
On Saturday, the city is celebrating the new additions with a party. A D.J. and food trucks will be on hand from 6 p.m. to dusk.
Organizers are encouraging participants to bring lawn chairs and blankets to the event, which will also feature a screening of the Disney movie “Raya and the Last Dragon.”
