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.
This project consists of erosion control/stabilization improvements at the Oak Point Park and Nature Preserve Pond. Improvements include the construction of gabion mattresses, concrete rip-rap and embankments, and a ledge stone wall. There will be trail closings and detours for the erosion control projects. Please see FAQs for more information.
