This is a great park right on the middle of the city. It has about 13 miles or so of paved trails for walking, biking, rollerblading, running, etc. There is a huge variety of wildlife: raccoons, armadillos, bobcats, owls, snakes, and more birds than you can count. I've even seen a beaver, a fox, and turtles. A branch of the Trinity River runs through it. There are fields for soccer or kite flying, pavilions for cooking out, childrens' play areas, and miles of mountain bike trails. I've been going to this park for nearly 15 years, and it's a favorite. Like a little slice of the country right in the middle of the Metroplex.

This park is amazing. There are miles of concrete trails for biking, walking or roller blading. The playground is new and very unique. There is a huge grassy field for sports, kites, frisbee- you name it.

Beautiful nature park. There are multiple walking trails and each one has different attributes. There are great picnic areas including some covered. Also the park has a living Science Center and children play area. The park has a river that runs through it. The park is an excellent place to do bird watching.

While on vacation, needed a place we could get some exercise and walk our dogs. This place is off the best and path, but we'll worth the drive. Great park with awesome facilities, like trails, bathrooms, playground and lots of watering holes.

Great place year round to hike and bike. Nice playground too. Good shade on the main trails along the creek and river.
We have spotted armadillos, bobcats, and many other wild critters.
