City of Lake Dallas - Thousand Oaks Park
Thousand Oaks Park consists of approximately 10.2 acres in a woodland setting with fishing and a wildlife pond. A natural storm drainage creek bisects the property. Situated between single-family housing developments on three sides and a road to the south that borders the Army Corps of Engineers lake property, this park is the natural drainage for a large portion of the city into Lake Lewisville.
The park is accessed primarily by walking and bicycling; there is limited on-street parking. Because of limited access this property is described as a neighborhood park. This park serves about 630 single-family residences within a 1/2 mile radius.
The park was deeded to the city as part of the Thousand Oaks subdivision development in 1995. The park is mostly undeveloped, with a large portion not cleared of brush and virtually impassable, and one section that is mostly ravine and not developable. There are a large number of trees, many which are very good specimens. The area that is clear is primarily mowed underbrush or dirt.
