Best time to visit
The 800 acre Oak Point Park and Nature Preserve is the largest park in Plano. The park has 3.5 miles of concrete trails and 5 miles of dirt trails and includes a mix of habitats. Park facilities include a picnic pavilion, amphitheater/stage, an equestrian area and an artificial lake.
Oak Point previously was a farm. The prairie is second growth though some of the forest is original. Over the years the park has expanded through successive land purchases. The lake is bordered by a concrete dam but it is otherwise undeveloped. Fishing is permitted but not swimming or boating. Most of the longer dirt trails are located along Rowlett Creek near Spring Creek Parkway and the amphitheater. The main entrance and primary parking area is off Jupiter Road. This is inconvenient because it is a trek to the Rowlett trails from the Jupiter lot.
For a quick easy walk, consider the 1 mile concrete path which begins at the main parking lot and circles the lake. This path is wide enough for both walkers and bikers. The 3/8 mile High Meadow Trail is a more natural walk, and it crosses a picturesque prairie. Life’s worries can be momentarily forgotten on this trail when gazing at the rolling hills and standing in a gentle breeze. The Rowlett Creek Trail is about 1.5 miles. It is forested and more secluded but is well marked. The trail passes a small pond and parallels an interesting deeply eroded creek bed.
Oak Point is a relaxing place to unwind and to enjoy a picnic or take a short stroll. It also is a good venue for a longer more vigorous walk or for a bike ride. Overall, this park is an attractive recreation option in a more natural setting and with reasonably good privacy. This link has a trail map:
