There are plenty of families that call Plano, TX home. Our Plano movers at AB Moving & Storage have been lucky enough to help many of these families relocate to this lovely North Texas city.

Aside from its well-performing schools and an abundance of single-family homes, what attracts families to Plano? One key thing is the extensive collection of attractions and family-friendly outdoor activities in Plano to keep the whole family entertained.

Looking for fun things to do in Plano with kids? Next time you have a free weekend off or when school is finally out, consider visiting some of these places listed below.

Oak Point Park and Nature Preserve

At 800 acres, Oak Point Park and Nature Preserve is the largest park in Plano, TX. All this space allows for lots of indoor and outdoor recreational activities. While nature exhibits and venue rentals are found inside the park’s attractive modern facility, the real fun is found outside.

Enjoy guided nature walks, hiking, and biking on the 8.5 miles of paved and soft trails. The area around Rowlett Creek is particularly scenic. A centrally located lake offers plenty opportunities for fishing, kayaking, canoeing, and stand-up paddle boarding.

For adventurous families looking for more of an adrenaline rush, head over to the park’s Go Ape Zip Line & Treetop Adventure area where groups can have fun ziplining and navigating a rope course in the forest canopy. Oak Point Park is also the site of the annual Plano Balloon Festival, where visitors can go hot air ballooning or even skydiving!

Heritage Farmstead Museum

A historic farm museum on 4.5 acres of land where you and your children can learn more about the rich agricultural history of North Texas. A living history site, the pink Victorian farm house is carefully preserved while costumed historians and volunteers give tours and recreate what life was historically like in the Texas Blackland Prairie region.
