PLANO - Plano residents will soon have a nature center to call their own, as the $5.5 million Oak Point Nature and Retreat Center is scheduled to open in late August.

The 19,930-sf facility will include a visitor’s center, nature center, multiuse event rooms with approximately 11,130 sf of office space and approximately 8,800 sf of public space.

The center — located on the east side of Oak Point Park and Nature Preserve — will focus on the natural elements and ecosystems found within the park.

In the building’s lobby, visitors will see an interactive map highlighting the area’s geology, hydrology, plants and animals as well as the park’s history.

Residents and companies will be able to utilize the facility; leased space will also be available for corporate retreats, team-building activities and social functions.

The grounds will provide open areas for events and family activities, such as star gazing, birdwatching and campfires featuring storytellers.

A grand opening for the Oak Point Nature and Retreat Center is planned for late this summer.
