This is a wonderful place to escape with a walk or hike or even a mountain bike ride. I used the outer loop to train for my Inca Trail trek and it was quite beneficial. It has hills, streams, woods, prairie and a lot more.

My wife and I went out here to enjoy a nice walk in the park. There are several different trails to explore. It is pet friendly so you can have your dogs enjoy nature at the same time you do. Been there several times and will continue to go when able.

I've lived in Plano for years, but only this summer took it upon myself to get acquainted with the intricate trail system here. There are wide, paved trails for biking, strollers and easy walking, as well as natural trails throughout the park. There are 3 distinct ecosystems -- You might even see some interesting wildlife!

This is a fantastic place to walk, hike, bike. Filled with trees, and off the beaten path walks, it is peaceful. There's a park for kids. A covered seating area, you may have to reserve it. But I come out here a lot to take pictures. www.jamesedward.com.

I love this park. We took our family photos there last fall and they turned out amazing. Lots of good spots for natural settings and backgrounds. The hills are fun for running or biking, or just a leisure stroll.

Loved going to such a tranquil spot, in the centre of suburbia. Unfortunately, there is such limited signage for the trails that we spent most of the time walking on the cycle path. But what a wonderful spot. A wonderful way to escape the hustle and bustle of day to day life.

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
