Love getting lost in this preserve. Yes, it is that big. Good for bikes, tricycles, wagons, strollers, hikers, dogs, even handicapped. Nice creek runs through it. Elevation with views. Playground. Finally expanded parking.

Our favorite place for a sunset, dog walk, workout or family hike! Even when the parking lot is packed you won't feel the crowd! Best part is feeling a million miles from the city, right in our back yard! Concrete trails or through the woods, you will find your peaceful escape!

Great spot for a brisk walk or jog, or a bike ride. Well marked trails, bathroom facilities, just outside of the Legacy area in Plano.

Varied paths, creeks, bridges, treed and open areas, nice vistas to the west. Two small picnic pavilions with nice stonework. Found some poison ivy not far from picnic area. Be aware. Small playground with wood chip-covered ground. Small patches of bluebonnets near entrance. Come early on weekends--the parking lot gets packed.

Walking, biking, running...beautiful place to enjoy nature...for everyone! Lots of places to stop and relax, and interesting places for kids to play as well.

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
