My wife and I came to the park this time just to enjoy a trip down memory lane. We were docents for River Legacy Park 20 years ago and we were fortunate to be married under the Pavilion on a beautiful day among family and friends. While we continue to ride our bicycles and sometimes our Harley to the park,... More

We all went as an office grilling party. We rode bikes,walked trails,played touch football.We had hamburgers,hot dogs,and all the fixings.There was plenty of parking and restrooms. This park is huge and has a lot of wildlife. Great for large parties and you can just let the kids run and go crazy.

My son loved the free program they had to discover the habits and adaptations during a live animal observation with a River Legacy Naturalist at River Legacy Living Science Center.

Shaded bike trail is great anytime of the year. Trail makes for over a 13 mile ride out and back. Watch for snakes, coyotes, armadillos and other wildlife along the way. Busy on weekends with walkers, runners and bikers on this multiuser trail.

The River Legacy Living Science Center is a building within the park that was built to be an education center. There is a tiny indoor playground for little kids and a few science displays such as live lizards in terrariums. You can sit at a table and look through big microscopes (designed for kids) at slides of parts like an... More

It's a pleasant enough park, and there are some great trails for bike riding, plus there's offroad hiking/riding areas. Although if you are hiking, watch out for the bikers! Years ago I remember taking the girl scout troop there for some educational opportunities they have, and the girls loved it. Pretty sure the local schools do field trips there sometimes,... More

Love to walk in this park. It has many trails to choose from. All are surrounded by trees. Some trails have water running along them. You may reserve picnic areas and pavilion. Groups hold events here and there is a museum which offers classes for children and a meeting room. There are also grassy areas which are used by individuals... More

What a beautiful park! There's something for everyone! The paved paths are wonderful. The winding pathways go through the woods and you often see the river. There's wildlife everywhere. There are always walkers, runners and bicycles on the paths. It's a great place for families and picnicking.

We arrived before sunrise to enjoy a long walk. Could have been our mistake. I thought it was an out and back and didn't see the map before starting the walk. We walked on one trail that was a circle (white) until I finally found the map maybe went around at least twice then went out the red trail. Upon... More
