Nearly a year after its first announcement, a multi-purpose pavilion has opened at The Boardwalk at Granite Park in Plano. The new pavilion comes as part of Granite Park’s plan to make the Boardwalk more pedestrian-friendly and suitable for outdoor events. 

With the pavilion, the team behind Granite Park hopes to bring in a new crowd; a demographic of people who love food and culture.

“We are focused on creating an urban neighborhood look and feel with venues like the new pavilion,” said Will Hendrickson, senior managing director of Granite Properties in a press release. “It provides a gathering spot to bring people together, whether it’s through live music, a fitness class or supporting a cause.”

Now that the pavilion is finished, it will hold several events. One of the first events will be Cape Day, which will take place on Thursday, November 7. On Cape Day, participants can honor patient superheroes at Children’s Health who fight courageously against illness and injury every day.

There is also a yoga class scheduled for Thursday, November 21, which will be taught by instructors from Divine Balance Yoga.
