Stewardship is everyone's responsibility - help us preserve your Preserve!
Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve is a natural respite within our suburban city. It is a special place left largely undisturbed where visitors can have the pleasure of being surrounded by nature and experiencing animals, plants and ecoregions found in North Central Texas. Environmental stewardship means responsibly using and managing land and resources so they can be used and enjoyed now, and just as much in the future. In order for Oak Point to remain a healthy nature preserve, it is important that all users act as stewards of the park. Your proactive stewardship of this park will help when you:
• properly dispose of litter
• deposit pet waste in trash cans
• do not disturb plants, animals or any part of the environment
• stay on trails that are clearly designated for use
