There’s also a 1,800 square ft. splash area modeled on a creek which is typically open from the first week in April through to mid-October.

Windhaven Meadows Park has 1.9 miles of concrete trail that connects to both the Legacy and Bluebonnet trails, making it very popular for cycling. Also featured are a dog park and several pavilions you can reserve for birthday parties.
