This is a great park right on the middle of the city. It has about 13 miles or so of paved trails for walking, biking, rollerblading, running, etc. There is a huge variety of wildlife: raccoons, armadillos, bobcats, owls, snakes, and more birds than you can count. I've even seen a beaver, a fox, and turtles. A branch of the... More

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.

The park includes basketball courts, covered picnic area, tennis courts, children's playground, and baseball fields. There is plenty of parking. There are water stations. I connects to a linear walking trail that goes 14 miles.

It's all free and educational! The kids loved it! Pond in back filled with fish and turtles is very peaceful. LOTS of hiking trails, but watch for snakes! We came up on one, but it was more scared of us! Great great park! I highly recommend it.

I prefer Ft. Worth Trinity trails for biking. Be very careful in late Summer months as Copperheads are out in abundance. We saw seven of them on the trail in one evening. I rode FW trails 5 days a week for 3 years and only saw 1 snake the whole time! Some of the turns can be a bit dangerous... More
