A few weeks ago, we asked the members of Arlington BubbleLife to vote for their favorite parks in the area. Although we got a handful of suggestions, Arlington's River Legacy claimed first place with a whopping 75 percent of the votes.
The park has many great amenities, including an awarding-winning Living Science Center that includes aquariums/terrariums with native animals, nature trails, a pond, educational programs, and summer classes. You can also host weddings and other events there. The park itself hosts eight miles of hiking and biking trails surrounded by trees and wildlife. You can also mountain bike, picnic, or enjoy the playground. If you're feeling especially outdoorsy, you can canoe down the river or go fishing.
River Legacy also hosts community events throughout the year, including After Dark in the Park, Kite Festival, and Family Campout. For more information on events visit riverlegacy.org.
It's pretty easy to see why the park garnered so many votes from locals. So, why do you love River Legacy?
