Oak Park is located on the northeastern shore of Navarro Mills Lake in central Texas. Oak Park Day Use area is open from April through September with picnic tables, restrooms, and a swimming beach. Visitors can enjoy a view of the lake from the facility and participate in popular outdoor actives like swimming and picnicking. The lake area provides the perfect setting to get away from it all, especially for city-dwellers from the nearby Dallas-Fort Worth metro area.The brilliant array of native flowers draws visitors from all over to the lake area during the spring. Bluebonnets, paintbrushes and a myriad of other native plants transform the often-bleak winter landscape into an incredible palette of colors.
