“A large park on the Trinity River”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Not much of a river. Outside of Texas, you probably call it a large creek. But the Park is large with open areas, hiking trails, a great set of long concrete trails set up for skating and biking, lots of Texas nature, including bobcats if you are lucky. We, people who live in Arlington, feel very lucky to have it.

“Great Place to Be”
Reviewed December 5, 2012

When you are looking for open area and a great place to visit on a regular basis. This is the spot!! The Nature Center is worth the time to visit as well. You see a part of Texas.

“Great park for the kids, bike and hiking.”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

This park is really great to spend just a few minutes to all day. The play area has recently been redone and the bike paths and trails are far more than just few city blocks.

“Best roller blading in the DFW area”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

I used to drive 25 miles just to roller blade here. The trails are entertaining and the scenery is very nice. Everything that any other trail would dream of being. I visited 10 years ago, however.

“An unexpected gem!”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

I like running and biking. Three years ago I stumbled onto River Legacy Park and make it a point to visit each time I am in town. It's a great multi-use area with a paved trail system for running and a loop of single-track dirt trails for mountain biking or trail running. Nothing technically difficult but it's satisfying and scenic and a pleasant surprise to find in this (mostly) flat area of the country. A few spur trails take you over the river itself and you can run or bike quite far before having to turn around. Remember, once the sun goes down it gets dark quickly!
