  • Really enjoy this park. Plenty of parking. They have some good views on the river but mostly offer long trails for walks. Easy to get three to four miles in about an hour with no hassle on a paved trail, good if it rains. Often see armadillos, hawks, raccoons, or even a bobcat like I did this past weekend.
  • River Legacy Park is incredible! There is a 7 miles paved trail choir walking, running, or biking. The trail runs along the Trinity River and there is a wide variety of wildlife. We've seen and photographed coyotes, bobcats, rabbits, various birds, snakes, beavers and lizards. There is a nature center that is free to visit and teaches kids about the animals. This park also has multiple playgrounds a short distance from the trail. There are picnic tables and pavilions for parties. We love the park and ride bikes there frequently, and also take the grandkids to play.
  • Amazing!!! Great bike trails!!! After looking for a decent bike trail in a Arlington and east fort worth i came upon this little Gem and i must say with the constant improvements and the great maintenance the city dedicates to this park i can see why there are so many people there and why just entering it fills me with a glee that is only surpassed once i have completed my bike rides and my body is flooded with endorphins and filled with a sense of accomplishment and awe from the beautiful bike trails and the scenery once you have passed over all the bridges on the trails and have read all the little signs that give you little fast facts which is always enjoyable! Plus always have you have a good chance of seeing a little bobcat which is very exciting!!!
  • Today was my first time going to this park. I have to say this park was amazing, great hiking and biking paths, you get to see nature, and great courtesy bikers. They let you know when they are passing you up. This will now be my go to park when i want to walk/hike.
  • Best park in Arlington hands down. Water fountains every mile or two and a nice cool breeze through most of it due to the river. Many pokemon go gyms and stops if your willing to ditch the car and walk or ride. Im not sure why people say to watch out for the bobcats. I havent heard of anyone being attacked and every time I see them they just ignore people and walk off into the woods. I feel safe here at night compared to other parks ive been to.
