I love this park. My mom and I enjoy taking our dogs for long walks on the many trails. The water fountains here have a second water fountain on the ground for dogs to drink from, which is a big plus in the hot months. This place is clean, and there are bathrooms.

Great place to go for hiking, biking, picnics, etc. Just be watchful, as coyotes and bobcats have been seen in the area lately.

Animals, birds and species of plants make this running/walking park a weekend must do, take a picnic and rest in the pavilions while the kids enjoy the Texas sunshine.

We used to live nearby and hadnt visited for years. Then our oldest daughter chose the Living Science Center as a venue for her outdoor wedding. What a beautiful park and fantastic Center! Plus walk, run, jog, bike, skate, picnic, or just cruise through!

River legacy Park is a great place to walk. It has great trails and convenient parking. However, keep all your valuables locked in your trunk and watch your surroundings.

Never too crowded with seasonal events for families, like "Dark in the Park" and Regatta racing in cardboard boats. I've watched the Park grow in the past 25 years!

There are really great paved trails that are safe, and wide - for hiking and cycling at this park. In addition, the mountain bike trails make for an excellent place to hike, with options up to 10 miles, in addition to the EKG trails, which can certainly get your heart rate elevated. I will make a trip to the park... More

This is my near by, go to, shake off a hard day, place to get away from it all. With a central walking circle of 1.14 miles, you can see birds, wildflowers, an occasional soccer match, and bbq gatherings as you walk. My favorite, though, is the 8 mile stretch that follows the Trinity River. Easily visible markers inform you... More

This park is huge. The trails are long enough to get in a good run, walk, or bike ride and most of them are well shaded. There are also great views of the Trinity River along the way and many places on the trails where you can stop and sit and enjoy the views. Aside from the trails there are... More

I use the park all year around for riding both trail and road bicycles. I also run in the dirt trails. The park is well maintained and the trails range from simple to quite challenging.
