Beautiful Park and Nature Preserve

This is a beautiful place in Plano to walk, ride bikes, and picnic. The lake is very pretty and you forget that you are in the shadow of Big D.

Oak Point Park and Nature Preserve is a great place for nature lovers. It makes you forget that you're only a few minutes away from the busy city of Dallas. Lovely lake, nice hiking trails, horse rentals. One thing I don't like is that they are now putting office buildings right by the entrance to the park.

Many visitors enter Oak Point through the main entrance off Los Rios Blvd. They enjoy the pavilion, lake, and trails there, but don't know about the trails south of Rowlett Creek. To really appreciate the preserve, experience both sides. For the easiest access to the trails on the south, use the Amphitheater entrance off Spring Creek Parkway just east of... More

We lived in Plano for years and just drove by. This time we were in town visiting friends and relatives, and we stopped to just to walk around since the gate was open. I was surprised how nice it is back behind the woods, and now regret we didn't take advantage of this place when we lived in Plano.

Lots of parking, some parts still under construction, clean toilets, nice wooded walking trails, huge clean lake with fishing, good exercise, some scenic views. Well worth a visit, its less crowded than Arbor Hills and did I mention more parking?

IT was peaceful and nice people walking and running and biking around. Alternate trails throughout the preserve are great and moderate incline. I'd go every day if I could!

This is nice when the wild flowers are out in the spring. A good place to fly a kite or to picnic. Seems to be a safe area for families

Great park!! At outset it seems like the other parks in Plano but its paved trail is wider than others-- a pleasant surprise. Then you realize the beautiful woodsy interior foot paths - one which follows along the creek. They are so peaceful and a cool temp under the canopy of trees. Lovely and kinda romantic for a couple -... More
