Great biking trails

A lot of fun! Try FunTown and EKG for some nice jumps and fast hill action! I came here to bike with friends, and we all enjoyed it.

Love this place. From taking my daughter to the playground, to getting some exercise in for myself. Great place to see nature and a few animals.

My family has been coming here for years, even when we moved clear across town. The park is large enough son that many people can make use if it without there being any problem. The trails are varied and paved for runners, bikers, or people taking a nice stroll. The fields are large enough to host picnics, soccer, and running... More

We have been going to this park for years, miles and miles of jogging/biking trails used to have off road biking trails but they blocked them off. Great place to take pets huge open field, lots of picnic pavilions some hidden. They need more water fountains but other than that great place to go.

This place is great! Not much shade on the play area so bring your sunscreen, but nice walking/biking trails.

This park has a unique playground. My kids love the smaller play areas located along the main walking circle. I love the park for its many walking trails. Be prepared to see a lot of wildlife. We have seen snakes, coyotes, and lots of armadillos. There are also many group pavilions that can be reserved.

I personally enjoy this park. Although it is located in a very busy, populated city, this is a nice getaway that provides trees, biking trails, natural wildlife, and walking trails. There is a living science center nearby, is dog friendly, and everyone is courteous. Not bad for a big city. There are also options to kayak but I haven't taken... More

An amazing natural resource in North Arlington. Wonderful place to bike or run for exercise or to walk/stroll on the paved or unpaved trails along the Trinity River enjoying the peaceful surroundings of this 1300 acre park in the middle of a metropolitan area of about 6 million inhabitants. Terrific environment to photograph nature in the forest floodplain bordering the... More

It offers miles of nice,wide and heavily shaded concrete sidewalks. Part of the walks are above the Trinity River, so a nice water view. A lot of the area on either side of the sidewalks have been left in a more natural state. I have seen lots of cardinals in the park. Also will other wildlife, such as the bobcats-early... More
