“A great place to spend the day with your family”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

River Legacy has something to offer almost everyone. It has miles of bike and walking trails picnic areas and beautiful trees everywhere. There is an abundance of wildlife and nice play grounds for the kids. The Science center is free and open to the public and offers great educational opportunities for the whole family.

“Quiet Oasis in the City”
Reviewed July 14, 2012

The park is large enough to accomodate many activities at once. Skating, running, soccer, baseball and communing wih nature. It is enjoyable and small enough to make you want to return frequently.

“Escape the city!”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

We discovered River Legacy park while in Arlington on vacation. This is a wonderful place to picnic, play, exercise, and enjoy nature. We loved the woodsy feel of the walking trails, and particularly enjoyed relaxing on the benches next to the river. Our 7 year old loved seeing turtles, fish, and dragonflies. We were surprised at how clean it was. (No litter, no graffiti!) Clean restrooms and plenty of of water fountains made it easy to spend the afternoon enjoying the park.

“Very Large Park, Family Friendly, Good Bike Trails”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

River Legacy Park has fabulous bike trails for riding - some shaded, some in the sunshine, all of them paved and safe. Always lots of activity from bikers, joggers, skaters, and health nuts looking for an outdoor environment to enjoy. There are also places to picnic (outdoor charcoal grills, tables, kiddie parks.) Has a nice rural feel to it and is a popular gathering place. I highly recommend it if you're looking for outdoor fun and a place to get healthier.
