For a smallish nature area in the middle off DFW metroplex, it's got some good trails, clean, easy to get to and bigger than you'd expect. Highly recommend.

I love Arbor Hills! I've been going there about 4 times a week, every week for the past 3 years. It feels like you're not even in the city anymore. I always see wildlife too (Snakes, Scorpions, Coyotes, Bobcats, Birds, Rabbits.. etc) The only time I don't like arbor hills, is when its crazy packed on pretty weekend days. But... More

Take the dogs, put on your tennis shoes and go for a walk or run. You don't even feel like you are in the city. You can rent the "porches" out for family gatherings or parties. Do bring your bug spray because the bugs can get very bad.

We take our annual holiday photo here every year and we are not alone. On the weekends in the fall, you'll see professional photographers with small groups and families all over the fields and in the creek. There are three party pavilions that you can reserve (through the city of Plano) and more covered seating by the playgrounds. There are... More

Great year round for hiking, biking and playing but we especially love it in the summer. The kids love exploring the creek under the shade of the trees and cool water on their feet. It is one of the few outdoor activities we can enjoy outside in the summer.

I really, really like this place. I used to live right next door. It's a great place to really walk in a nature place and use the outdoors as the gym. There are several trails that go for various lengths... you gotta go !

Hidden natural park in the middle of a busy city was the perfect escape for me and a couple friends to get our cardio on. You can enjoy everything from walking to biking. There is also a nice park for the kids. Well maintained and clean. I have also done a few professional photography sessions there. Great backgrounds and natural... More

We walk there a lot. It's 2 miles around one way on the big trail. There's a long natural trail round the back 40. Lots of wildlife, lots of shade on the trails, vistas about as pretty as it gets for how flat it is (Plano means, and definitely is, pretty flat). About as hilly as it gets around here... More

We have lived here in Frisco for 3 years and decided to find a park to walk in July that had shade. We enjoyed it! I felt like I was somewhere else in hills at a forest.

Close to my house, I can't believe how lucky I am to be nearby. I'm there 3-4 times a week to walk and enjoy nature. Except the bikers who go way too fast and don't obey the rules of the road, it's a peaceful place. (I was run over once...broken ankle and sutured knee.). Great park!
