“Wooded retreat”

Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve
Ranked #6 of 43 things to do in Plano
Attraction details
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Oak Point Part is a wooded retreat located just a mile from super busy highway 75 in East Plano. Dense wood lands and a meandering creek gives the fell of being far away from the city. Enjoy this close in Nature Preserve at your leasure.

The two interconnected parks of Oak Point Park and Bob Woodruff Park combine to form the best park in the city of Plano. The scenery of the park is nice, although it's nothing special. What makes this place great though is the length of the trails going through the park. As a competitive runner, this area is my favorite place to do 13 mile or longer long runs. Most runners would agree with me that this park is a great place to run. This assertion is shown by the fact that there is a race hosted at Oak Point Park almost every weekend. This park earns four stars and not five stars only because the scenery leaves something to be desired.

Clean, paved and relaxing park. We went here to bike their trail and the place was not too busy which was great. A few other cyclists were leisurely biking around. The trail is not that long but you can go around the lake multiple times to enjoy looking at the water, ducks, birds and turtles. A couple of people are found fishing and having a picnic too.

Don't forget your water, sunblock and snacks!

Oak Point Park and Nature Preserve is an east Plano gem. It has concrete trails, soft surface trails, a lake, pavilion, and an amphitheater. It also hosts the annual Plano Balloon Festival each fall.

The park is great for running, walking, and biking - or just plain relaxing.

Plano has an outstanding park system.

I walk here every chance I get when I'm visiting Plano. I can get in a 1 to 8 mile walk on nice wide cement bike paths, which are nice when it's been raining because the mud off the trails is the stickiest stuff in the world. Watch out for poisonous snakes. Best time to visit is early summer, when all the flowers are in bloom, and the prairie grasses are swaying in the breeze. Great place to get away from the Alaska cold, snow, & dark.
