Beautiful Park No Bathrooms

I love the park. 4.2 mile trail and small boat launch for canoes or kayaking. I was disappointed in the lack of facilities.

The paved trail is very wide, which is great. There is enough room for walkers, joggers, and cyclists. The side trails also looked very good. There is also convenient spots to put your kayak in the river. Everything seems well maintained. My only real complaint is lack of facilities. The park is very nice but there are no bathrooms, at...

The pond and trails make this a place of adventure and a site for picnics for the entire family or your organization. There are many places of interest and it's all free! Great spot for photo ops too!

You can ride bikes 14 miles in great trails through woods, pastures, and lake. Great trails and friendly folks on them. You travel along the Trinity River and see much wildlife and occasionally a bobcat in the distance. There are ball fields, picnic pavilions, Bring your dog and walk if you like. One of Arlington's great attractions.

This park is by far the star of Arlington parks. Great for walks, runs, dog walks, and cycling. On the river, trees, trees, trees, open spaces, children playground, and plenty of parking.

Great shaded walk! You can make a path in two directions, walking either direction is mostly shaded. There is a 2 mile round trip and the other direction is 8 miles (+/-) round trip. If you are a runner and can make it beyond the shaded longer direction, it is still a nice jog. There are bikes that do ride... More

Walked the trails for awhile. Very easy to traverse although be aware of other users (lots of bikes and joggers, as there should be). Lots of areas for picnic and an outstanding play area for our granddaughters. The hands on nature center is worth a quick stop, but don't expect too much.

River Legacy Park is relatively new. It opened in 1990 with a little under 400 acres. Through the help of their foundation, it's grown to 1,300 acres. It sits along the Trinity River and boasts a wonderful trail system through the riparian woods. A living science center was added in the middle 90's. Several fields and parks have been added...
