Arbor Hills is a great place for a quiet stroll or to sit and read on a lazy afternoon. They have miles of paths for running, walking, biking, hiking . . . you'll quickly forget how close you really are to the hustle and bustle. Depending on your preference, you may see lots of others on your path, or you... More

I take my pup here sometimes to run and explore. The Texas sunsets are even more stunning from the viewing pavilion. There are quite a few trails that lead to creeks that are worth exploring. Overall a fun place in Plano - take your mosquito repellent!

Plano does not have many parks with larger outdoor spaces to hike. Arbor Hills, although small, is the largest around. It is good for a nice jog, around 3 miles, bike ride, or off-road biking. The kids playground is very nice. On weekends it gets so crowded it is hard to watch kids. Bathrooms on site help. Nice places to... More

This is a great place to relax in a beautiful natural setting. There are different paths depending on how energetic one is feeling. Many paved trails, additional loops, perimeter hike, etc. offer something for all. It includes hilly areas, woods, open areas, a creek and more. Flowers, varied vegetation, and wildlife make it a peaceful natural refuge Great for walkers... More

I ve been going to this preserve for more than 10 years now, and it's always a pleasant place to exercise. Clean, with paved walkways and safe for all. Plenty of parking. You can walk, jog, bike, hike. Bring your kids to the playground and your leashed dog/s. I am sure they have more activities, and you'll find something to... More

I love to go to this park and walk on Sunday afternoons. It is well kept by the city and I always feel safe.

Go commune with nature in the middle of the city. Walk, bring your bike, bring the dogs, bring the kids, bring the mother-in-law! There is a mountain bike trail and so much more!

Great wide, paved walking paths that you can bring you dogs, on leash, with you. There are also mountain bike trails, one way only please, for use. Do not hike these trails or you will be run over. Note: They will be closed after it rains to protect the trails integrity.

We go here many times during the year. If you include both circuits, the loop is about 2.5 miles in length. The scenery is fantastic and it beats walking in our neighborhood.
