I lived in Arlington for several years, and used to visit this park several times a week. It is fairly large, and has two main entrances: the southern (and main) entrance is near Green Oaks Blvd & Cooper St, and the eastern entrance is off of N Collins St (north of NE Green Oaks Blvd). The park contains playgrounds, large... More

My husband & I have brought the grand kids here every spring & fall. We enjoy feeding the ducks, the kids enjoy the play ground and the little hike path is very enjoyable.

Walking or biking, paved or dirt trails, this is a fun park. We take our dogs walking here.

This park is amazing. There are miles of concrete trails for biking, walking or roller blading. The playground is new and very unique. There is a huge grassy field for sports, kites, frisbee- you name it.

Beautiful nature park. There are multiple walking trails and each one has different attributes. There are great picnic areas including some covered. Also the park has a living Science Center and children play area. The park has a river that runs through it. The park is an excellent place to do bird watching.

While on vacation, needed a place we could get some exercise and walk our dogs. This place is off the best and path, but we'll worth the drive. Great park with awesome facilities, like trails, bathrooms, playground and lots of watering holes.

Great place year round to hike and bike. Nice playground too. Good shade on the main trails along the creek and river. We have spotted armadillos, bobcats, and many other wild critters.
