They have remodeled the playground and walking trails and it is super. You can walk the trails and have the kids play on the playground.

Lake Arlington is a great area to go around to get some good exercise, and the lake itself is gorgeous and glistening with the signs of nature everywhere! There's also a neat path that goes through the forest and you can rent a paddleboat too!...More
