Very soon, “On The Square” hopes to post its very first guest blogger submission. Hayley Wood is the full-time blogger for Craig Ranch and she has agreed to give us the “person-on-the-street” 4-1-1 on events over in her neck of the woods.
If you aren’t familiar with Craig Ranch or if you’ve been away for a while, there is a lot of activity going on over there. Craig Ranch is a 2,200 acre master-planned business, retail, and residential community on the west side of McKinney, bordering on our neighbor, Frisco. It is located just north of State Highway 121, bordered on the east by Stacy and Alma Roads, Custer Road on the west, and extending north past Silverado.
Besides being home to some beautiful neighborhoods with incredible residential amenities, Craig Ranch is also home to some absolutely incredible venues that host events that we square-lovers would be interested in too.
- The Cooper Fitness Center is hosting the nationally sanctioned Cooper Sprint Triathlon Series with events coming up on July 20th and September 14th.
- The Ball Fields of Craig Ranch will play host to the McKinney Relay For Life on April 26th
- The TPC Craig Ranch golf course is on the PGA Tour.
There’s also the McKinney Soccer Fields Complex, the Dr. Pepper StarCenter, the Michael Johnson Performance Center, and The Beach at Craig Ranch. Not to mention that Craig Ranch is just a stone’s throw from Storybook Ranch which regularly offers unique holiday events like hay rides and a pumpkin patch in the fall, Easter egg hunts in the spring, and kid’s camps in the summer. I don’t know about you, but I want to be one of the first to know when the Craig Ranch Town Center shopping becomes available too.
So, I’m looking forward to hearing from Hayley about all the neat things coming up out there and I hope you are also.
Until next time,
