Prescribed Burns planned for early 2019
Plano Fire-Rescue’s Wildland Firefighting team will work with Plano’s Park Department to conduct three prescribed burns at Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve throughout January and February 2019 (see attached map). The fires will be conducted under defined fuel and weather conditions with a written plan and overseen by Plano Fire-Rescue firefighters trained in wildland firefighting. Signs will be placed throughout the park indicating the day and time of the event several days before each prescribed burn. The park will remain open to the public during the burns but the concrete trail on the west side of the nature preserve (west of Jupiter) will be closed.
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 3.5 miles of concrete trails and 5 miles of soft surface trails located along Rowlett Creek. Nature trails are open from sunrise to sunset daily.
The pavilion at Oak Point Park & Nature Preserve is available for reservation. Please check for availability here. Please call 972-941-7275 from
