When I stay in the Arlington area I enjoy going for a jog at this park. It is very scenic and quiet, with not a lot of people on the trail.

We took advantage of the playground at the end of a busy day with 6 children. It was clean and fun. Bathrooms were also clean and convenient.

Ever-expanding park along the Trinity River with lots of wildlife and trails to explore. Bobcats, feral hogs and wild turkeys commonly sighted.
