Outdoor Recreation

Step beyond the threshold of your front door and move into the warm rays of the sun while you breathe in the fresh air. Join Plano Outdoor Recreation instructors and fellow citizens as we get outside to play, learn, and explore. Gain knowledge on the local environment that we live in and the different natural systems that we can find with our Outdoor Education Programs.

Test your skill at fishing, archery and navigation among other activities with our Outdoor Activities Classes. Love to workout but can’t stand to stay indoors? Outdoor fitness classes will have many great opportunities to keep you motivated and challenged. Love everything about the outdoors and can’t get enough? Outdoor Adventures trips are designed to expand your horizons with different locations and activities that are outside Plano. Find details on these and other exciting Outdoor Recreation activities on our Leisure Online web site.
