Chalco Hills is quite large and offers many trails and side spots to enjoy a picnic. The lake is near much of the trail systems so you get a nice view of the lake. Great place to spend a few hours enjoying the outdoors.

Beautiful natural great plains park. Tall grasses, not a whole lot of trees but enough. boat ramp and lot of walking trails. Like to go there to relax - you can always find a place where you can be alone. Deer, turkeys, lots of birds and critters. Don't have little ones but plenty of playgrounds. well kept and clean (even... More

Chalco Hills is the best in-town hiking opportunities, if not the best. Outside of town, Fontanelle Forest and Neale Woods are the best local hikes. By hiking, I do not mean going under power lines, next to a busy road or walking around houses. Chalco Hills has a variety of ecosystems you can hike around. There is a main trail... More

A great place for a jog, a bike ride or to wet a line. Large enough to be uncrowded and small enough to enjoy it all in a day. Good pan fishing, great trails and plenty of wildlife in the city.

We had our family pictures professionally done at Chalco Hills and really enjoyed the scenery and views. Lots of options for pictures and hiking. Diverse plant and tree life for those interested in exploring. Clean and well kept.

My only suggestion is to put up maps (signs) or offer them (brochures)... we got lost walking around the lake.

Chalco Hills is a great hiking area in the city limits. Off all the city parks, this one is the cleanest. It has a paved nice trail around the lake. The bonus is a great tree and plant diversity for botany nerds like me. Not every too busy on the main trails. The real beauty is in on the less... More

There is a leash-free dog area so you can actually walk with your dog (unlike some of the other dog parks where there is a leash-free area, but no trail). There are several issues with the trail: it... More
