Parks and Recreation
Large trees are common in the numerous parks in Plano, despite the city’s name referring to the region’s flat plains. On the east side of the city, close to Rowlett Creek, at Bob Woodruff Park, there is a tree that is thought to be over 200 years old.
Arbor Hills Nature Preserve, which has a pond named for Vasil Levski, and Oak Point Park and Nature Preserve are the two primary open space preserves. Biking routes connect Bob Woodruff Park and Oak Point Park and Nature Preserve, combining the two parks into one big, continuous park area that is larger than Central Park in New York City. At Oak Point Park and Preserve, there is a family-friendly location called Go Ape, which offers outdoor activities like ziplining and Tarzan swings.
Additionally, Oak Point Park and Preserve hosts the annual Plano Balloon Festival in September. Haggard Park is another outdoor area where the yearly Plano AsiaFest is held in May. The overall area under management by the Parks Department is 3,830.81 acres. According to the Plano Master Plan, the total area will be 4,092.63 when finished.
