Plano Parks and Recreation embarked on a special project in summer 2020 to re-establish the Bobwhite quail population at Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve. So far, staff has released 50 of these native birds into the wild with great success. Our hope is that these birds will thrive and restore the population at Plano's largest park.  Ensuring their success depends on us to keep an eye on them in the nature preserve. If any visitors come across these birds while on a walk or bike ride, please let us know where you saw them. You can email your sightings to Kymh@plano.gov or 
or call/text 972-742-9670. 

Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve, Plano's largest park, is 800 acres and extends from Parker Road on the south to Chaparral Road on the north and from Spring Creek Parkway on the west to Los Rios Boulevard on the east. The park boasts nearly 8 miles of concrete trails and 5 miles of soft surface trails located along Rowlett Creek. Nature trails are open from sunrise to sunset daily.

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  

Want to help preserve your nature preserve? YOU can make a difference. Volunteer to clean-up trash at Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve. Thanks for your help! Click here for information on how you can volunteer.

Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve is a proud partner organization to the American Kestrel Partnership. For more information, click here.
