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

Most people who visit the D/FW area have no idea that there is a river that runs through the middle of Dallas/Ft. Worth. It's often overlooked, but can be both beautiful and very dangerous during a Texas flash flood. But right in the heart of it all, lies a fabulous linear park that runs the entire length of Arlington along... More

Great place to walk and bike. Also, good for stroller pushing. Parking is plentiful. The thing that I was a little leary of was the fact that we saw a few snakes. It is a park created out of the wilderness area.

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.
