My favorite weekend afternoon place to ride a bike, hike, walk or run with your dog along the shady concrete trail along the Trinity River. Wildlife abounds and if your lucky you will see Bobcats, Coyotes and Arlingtonian's in their natural setting. Large picnic pavilions...More

I was visiting Arlington and River Legacy was a recommended destination. The trails are great and shared well between the walkers, bicyclers and runners. A very pleasant experience. Some historical information along the route as well as nature information.

Great place to get out in nature and run. Also, just to get out and do any kind of activity. Lots of wildlife. Opportunity to see Armadillos, Raccoons, Bobcats, and all kinds of birds. Beware, there are some snakes as well.

Visited this place with friends recently, but we used to live in the area. Really like the park. We've always enjoyed it. It has a HUGE green area, and two play grounds for kids (one for toddlers and another for youths). Go to the rear...More

You will find yourself wondering how far away are the cowboys in Fort Worth or the rude Yankees in Dallas in this serene green park. Biking trails and walking trails are wonderful. Wildlife still wild with an animal consciousness. Few tourists, mostly locals (like me)...on...More

Yes and it's a great place to take your dog. Much better than some of the other dog parks in the DFW area.
