I started out walking here - on the paved trails and the dirt/offroad trails. Have also ridden the mtn bike trails (i swear it is somehow 90% uphill - impossible for a loop but felt like it). I walk dogs from the animal shelter here with a group. We see lots of friendly people and other dogs. Definitely popular when... More

My expectations are a bit high, but when I think nature preserve, I expect quiet, serene, and certainly no crowds. We tried this place several times,at different times of the day, and it was so crowded we couldn’t really enjoy it. Unfortunately, you also have to watch your step carefully due to the ubiquitous amounts of dog poo everywhere that... More

Great place to get outside with the family, friends, your dog or alone for a walk or run. The paths are easy to navigate and if y ou take the big loop and and the small loop plus the dirt trail, you can get in a decent 5-6 miles run with some hills. I feel safe running it here however... More

I love the fact that it is close to home and there are plenty of places to walk and do some birding. There is a paved walking/biking trail, but many places to walk "off-trail". I have seen many different birds, coyotes and a bobcat! It's an asset to Plano.

Great for families, solo, biking, hiking, dogs on leash. Watch for wildlife! There are so many nooks and crannies, every trip could be a new adventure. Wevtake our pup and she loves splashing in the creeks! There are bike paths, tails, a play ground, picnic areas and much more!

If you want a nice, quiet, peaceful place to walk, run or bike without any dangerous automobile traffic in Plano, then this is the park for you. We have been coming to this park for 4 or 5 years. This place is an oasis in the middle of west Plano. When the trees are fully leafed, you can not see... More

been coming to this preserve for the last 5 years. Love it. Sometimes a bit too many dogs around but its a park and you have to expect it, but there are some people who don't pick up after their furry critter.

I have a yearly membership and it's one of the place you can get back to nature in DFW. Great place to visit

I love the walking and hiking trails. I wish more pet owners took responsibility in cleaning up after their pets but that is a problem in any park. Their playground is nice with a pavillion in the middle.
