For many years I've been coming to this park to walk and jog and I've always enjoyed the amount of open land available to do so many different activities. It's not unusual to see a Bobcat or other wildlife every now and then. It's a safe environment to be in and a fun one, too. I try to visit several... More

You are in nature in the middle of the city. There are miles of paved trails with lots of trees to keep you cooler as you adventure through.

This is one of the largest parks you will ever see. Miles upon miles of trails for running, biking, or just walking. Great kids areas. Pavillion for weddings, private parties, etc. Great kayaking or fishing.

The only reason... More

Good park for a walk or bike trail ride. This is a huge park with plenty of land; too bad the park has neglected to be dog friendly. Believe given the size and popularity of the park, a fenced area for the canines to run and be off leash would make this park perfectly wonderful. Arlington is a city with... More

I used to go to this park for my evening walks. It has lots of shades. There is beautiful lake where you can chill with your friends or your pets.

Endless paved trails, greenery and the Trinity River. I never get bored because the trails are meandering enough that I don't feel like I'm walking around in circles.

I frequently visit River Legacy park to get my daily dose of cardio. It is such a beautiful well designed park that keeps you out of the sun depending on the trail you choose. I have ran into a snake or two (which scared the lights out of me and made me run faster lol), but for the most part,... More
