We have taken scouts and shool children here to learn about nature is a well preserved and 'maintained' environment for years now. Tons of trails and different topographies from meadows to wet lands. Be sure to ask about the "butterfly tree" when there.

I read about this place in the TX Highways magazine, so we went out for an afternoon hike. Admission is $5/car. They have a few easy hikes to choose from. The Cottonwood Trail will take you by an old log cabin homestead that moved into the woods here. Take the detour along the Cicada Trail for a nice walk in... More

It's $5 to get in and there are 4 trails. A few of them were washed out due to the heavy rains recently. This place will be absolutely beautiful in the spring. I would venture to say fall would be he best time to visit-changing of the colors...

My husband and I just moved to the Lewisville area. We love trails, so we found LLELA advertised in a Southern Denton County magazine and online. We went one Saturday afternoon and spent about 4 hours on the trails. Entry fee to the park is $5/car. Not bad, but where we come from, most parks don't have fees, so it... More

Drove all the way out from central Dallas at a significant cost on toll roads and paid entrance fee to find out the Beaver paddling pond was almost dry,stinking, and would have to wade through snake infested muck to get to inch deep water. No wonder no one else was here. Website updated 2 weeks earlier indicated pond had "filled... More

I was taken on a field trip to LLELA for a college environmental biology class, and it was an absolute pleasure. I've lived in Lewisville my entire life, and I had never known about this wonderful nature preserve in my own town. Its an awesome place for a weekend hike or kayak trip. Great place for families to check out... More

Very low cost to get in and it bench seats and several BBQ pits available along with rest rooms. They had trees and you could enjoy the sounds of nature around you.

Wanted somewhere new to explore and hike with friends and happened upon LLELA. Beautifully kept and maintained we took the 2.1 mile Bittern Marsh Wetland Boardwalk Trail that takes hikers through a bottomland hardwood forest. The Bittern Marsh itself was an extraordinary surprise - full of flowering lilies....Two viewing blinds allow visitors to watch birds and wildlife and take photographs.... More

There is a lot to learn from the environmental learning center, or you can just spend time with nature and relax. On the several thousand acre property, there are hiking trails, kayaking, historical cabins and more. It is a great opportunity for kids and adults to be outdoors without leaving the city.
