Clean, well maintained trails. Stop over the bridge and watch the creek. The observatory is also another place to catch your breath. Lots of parking.

Very cool park. It has all kinds of terrain. Flat cement walkways, soft trails through the prairie and woods, ponds, creeks and ourlook sites. It is big and close to everything in the Plano, Tx area. Very clean and dog friendly.

Great for walking, but can get crowded. Bring your own water bottle. Very well maintained park that makes you feel miles away.

Numerous trail through the trees and across fields. You’d never know you were in Plano still. You can bike or walk your dog.

Before all the build up closing in, Arbor Hills had been a more tranquil place to share some time together with somebody. I remember when my kids were small, I, as a den leader brought a bunch of kids threading through the shallow water beneath...More

Tends to be pretty crowded early morning on the weekends, but, if you get out away from the front part near the parking lot, and especially if you get off the paved trails, it's pretty peaceful. You don't see many animals though.

It is during the day but like all other places it is best not to go there at night time by yourself.
