Plano is not Flat!

Arbor Hills Nature Preserve – Plano, TX

Plano is not Flat!

When you think of Texas, what do you think of besides cowboys, boots, horses and trucks?

Do you think it is flat?

Yes, Dallas is basically flat!  Plano is not Flat!

Did you know that on the Dallas TV series from the 80’s that old J.R. Ewing’s estate was in Parker , TX?

Yes -That is a bit of trivia for you.

Actually, when you venture farther west of the concrete and center of you will find great views, rolling terrain and lots of native Texas trees at the Arbor Hills Nature Preserve in Plano.

There are about 4.4 miles of winding smooth paved walking paths, but also the off road bike trails (About 2.2 miles) provide a challenge for a more vigorous workout. You will also find natural zones:

  • Biofilter
  • Riparian Forest
  • Upland Forest
  • Blackland Prairie

This really is one place to take your friends and family to enjoy the great outdoors. It is calming and relaxing respite from the madness of the city.  You will find natural untouched surroundings of meadows and habitats for birds and wildlife. The preserve is connected through a series of paths and bridges and there are several pavilion areas (with facilities) that can be reserved for private parties.

Your four legged buddies will love it too, not only is it a great place to relax, exercise, blow off some steam and socialize with friends, you will meet the best of breeds getting their exercise and walking their owners daily. (The big dogs really do lead!)


Other amenities include creeks, observation tower, playground for the kids, grills, picnic tables, shelters and much more. It is also located in walking distance from these Plano neighborhoods.

Great place to start the day with a jog or leisurely walk for those of us that  don’t run…or end the day with a barbecue and fire blazing sunset. You have got to love this quite refuge only minutes away from the hectic pace of city life.  You’ll be surprised that Plano is not Flat!
