Arbor Hills is such a beautiful, serene park right in the middle of the suburb. It's a precious hidden gem in Plano. There is a playground area for children, a couple of covered areas for groups or picnics, nice bathroom facilities and fantastic walking trails (paved and natural). There are also some great views at several spots along the trails... More

This is a great park on West side of Plano close to housing, hotels and restaurants, yet a world away from the bustle of everyday life. It has many trails for hiking, biking, jogging or a nice leisurely stroll through nature. There are many benches or pavilions along the way that you can take a break. You may even see... More

Nice walking and running trails. There is a mountain bike trail also (closed after rains). Can be very crowded, so a weekday is best. Lots of dogs, too. That can be good or bad.

My mom and I come here every Sunday morning for a nice walk. It is usually pretty quiet unless you encounter the occasional noisy family with young children. There are places to sit down and enjoy a snack or break and enjoy the scenery.

Plano is rated the top running city in the country and I can see why! Tuesday morning before my meetings I looked for places to run and found Arbor Hills, highly endorsed by the front desk at the Nylo Legacy I found a gem of a recreation area. Great trails, both paved and dirt, with some specifically dedicated to Mt... More

This has become our favorite place for a "hike". We walk the Outer Loop - greater distance and more challenging terrain. The weather is perfect this time of year - not sure what it will be like in a few months. The trails are well maintained, the bathrooms are open and clean. There are signs to beware of the wildlife... More

We just moved to Plano a few months ago and in the middle of renovating our house we try to find free things to do to get away from the mess. One Sunday afternoon we decided to visit this park. Beautiful! We only had a few hours to explore and we did not walk more than a mile through the... More

Walk the cement or get off onto the trails - take the outer loop, and the side trails 2 to 2.5 miles of fun

I have been living in the Plano/Allen area for the last 14 years and finally went to Arbor Hills last weekend. Always avoided it because I never thought that it would be this quiet and green. You don't feel you are close to a major tollway and another major street. The park is clean and has trails for everyone be... More
