Paddle boarding and kayaking are now a short drive away. You’ve heard rumors about the Plano Parks and Recreation Department expanding leisure options at the Oak Point Park Nature Preserve and the reports are now reality. The big pond on the site has been repurposed and is open for free-range kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding and canoeing.
Because this is somewhat of a “pilot” program – with hopefully other locations to follow – this sporting opportunity is offered on Wednesdays only from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. If you’re excited by this news but have no experience in either of these sports, kayaking and paddle boarding classes are available for beginners. Details about registration for “Introduction to Kayaking” (13 years and up) and “Stand Up Paddle Boarding” (10 years and older) are on page 47 of the Parks Leisure catalog. Use the course code to sign-up here.
Bring real outdoor adventure to your summer, on the water in one of the city’s most scenic green spaces –Oak Point Park Nature Preserve, 5901 Los Rios Boulevard. All this water fun costs $10/kayak – a fantastic low price. Bring your own and paddle board or kayak for free. Call Parks and Recreation for more details or to make reservations at 972-941-7250.
