Wow. Miles of hiking and biking trails right in the center of Arlington TX. A very relaxing and peaceful place to spend time to just chill out. Loads of trees, so plenty of shade during the hot summer months. A must check-out park.

This is one of the nicest parks we have been too. It has beautiful greenery and lots of areas to spread out. It has several nature trails and a center to learn about animals and wildlife. Lots of variety here. There are several nice playgrounds here too.

The park was beautiful and i actually had a bobcat walk out of the woods, it went right past me! It was an amazing experience but the park needs some more upkeep.

I visit this park quite often, they have a good playground, and good running paths. Also, if you mountain bike, they have probably the best (quite extensive) trails in Arlington - I highly recommend them.

Really great place to come for the day. Relaxing trails, nice playgrounds, and many pavilions for gatherings. There are security cameras everywhere so that early morning run feels a bit more secure. This park has something for everyone! I would check it out if your in the area.

River Legacy Park is a place for everyone, picnickers, walkers, runners, bikers, adults, kids. Be sure to visit the Living Science Center for great live and informational exhibits about the local environment. It revives the spirit to get away from city living and connect with nature.

I walk here often and it works. Traveling a lot I get to experience many beautiful parks and for our immediate area this is the one. People walk, ride bikes and can bring their dogs, too which is nice. The park also house an educational science center. It is conveniently located for most.

This is a huge park with beautiful trails and playgrounds, ducks, and a pavilion. Probably more than one pavilion, but went there for a walk to benefit an organization so I stayed with the walkers. I was impressed with lots of trails and plenty of parking, plus where we were was well designed for a large meeting. It seemed to... More
