Perfect place to get back to nature

My family loves this place. There are many paved trails for roller blading, running, biking, etc. It's great in the summer because there's a lot of shade and if you need a rest... read more

Other than for trail running, I'm not really sure what else there would be to do here. I see lots of families picnicking and I guess if you don't have to drive far to get here then that's all well and good but it certainly isn't worth any kind of drive. Not much to look at or write home about.... More

As a runner, I like the scenery to be at least somewhat enjoyable. Winding through open fields doesn't quite cut it for me. They hosted Suburbia, a music festival, here last year and it. was. awesome. Too bad it's not coming back because of lack of interested concert-goers. Might be a fun bike ride, but I haven't tried that yet!

My family loves this place. There are many paved trails for roller blading, running, biking, etc. It's great in the summer because there's a lot of shade and if you need a rest lots of benches. There are also many dirt trails that go through the trees. I've taken Cub Scouts on nature walks on those trails and they love... More

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!
