We took the dogs to Jack Carter Dog Park in Plano today. The dog park is across the pedestrian bridge from the parking lot. While there were a lot of cyclists out at the park today, as well as runners with their shirts off in 95 degree heat at 2pm, there were no other dogs at the dog park. This might be because there was absolutely no shade in the dog area! On the park's website, it says water stations are provided for humans and dogs, however, we didn't go into the dog area to verify. We decided to go to White Rock dog park instead as they have some shade, and the dogs can swim there.
I would like to give Jack Carter Dog Park a try some other time, but not until the fall when the weather is cooler.
The park is located at 2601 Pleasant Valley Dr, Plano, TX 75023. http://www.plano.gov/Departments/parksandrecreation/Parks/Pages/dog_park.aspx
