Dallas is one of the worst places if you like hiking and the outdoors (not hunting and fishing); very few parks and trails of any interest. Arbor Hills is decent, with some creeks and trees at least. One huge drawback is that it is very very crowded on weekends.

I came here to kill some time while waiting. It was clean and very family friendly- paved trails, playground, and open spaces. I did not walk the whole trail, but it looked like a fun family walk. Great place for some photos, too.

Great running trails - paved & unsaved - fantastic views from a hilltop structure - playground for small kids - large open spaces for kite flying - lots of parking - clean and well kept - a creek flows through it - truly a perfect piece of outdoor tranquility nestled within The big city of Plano!

We love Arbor HIlls! Its a great place for a nice long stroll in a place that feels like nature is prominent even when you are in a metro area! Playground is nice too and some great pavilions for parties!

Great facilities and paved trails. Family and dog friendly. Very safe. There are also bike paths and unpaved trails for the more adventurous types. We spent 45 minutes walking between our medical appointments as it is very near Presbyterian Hospital, the Texas Back Institute, etc. What a wonderful way to take a break. Plenty of parking and drinking fountains. Great... More

Very nice of-road and paved biking & walking trails. Very nice having this in the middle of the suburbs.

We've been to this park on several occasions -- biking, walking, kids playing at the playground, birthday parties / group events, and playing with our dog. This park is great! There's a lot to do, great nature around you, and plenty of room to spread out. It's one of our favorite places to go in Plano.

Husband likes the mountain bike trails. I usually just walk or run, too crowded to ride regular bike on path. Great memories taking my Girl Scout troops here for their "bridging " ceremony.

Love Arbor Hills - fun to hike, bike, rollerblade, walk the dog as you enjoy natural wooded setting. Lots of small trails to explore off the wide concrete paths. Go in the spring to enjoy Texas wildflowers. You definitely feel you've escaped the suburbs when you're in this park. Week-ends can be crowded.

Good spot to get out of typical Plano and walk on paved and dirt trails. Nice outlook area and very dog and stroller friendly.
