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

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.

We recently visited on spring break. We wanted to sign up for a trail walk bug detective event being held that day. Needless to say we arrived about 1pm and the rest of the tours were filled. Next time I will arrive when the doors open. We didn't want the day to go to waste so we walked around the... More

I was lucky enough to go during a beautiful 60 degree afternoon in January. We walked the trail and stopped every now and then to take pictures or to just take in the beauty of the outdoors. I took several photos of the water, the bridge, and the trees. According to my FitBit, we walked about 3 miles. I don't... More

Wow! What an amazing park. The facilities were clean and the park well kept. There were plenty of trails and we really loved the trails that ran down by the Trinity River.

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.
