The latest addition to the impressive list of Arlington parks, many longtime residents in southwest Arlington and the surrounding area have been waiting for some time for this acquisition to come to fruition. The 58-acre preserve of previously undeveloped land got a makeover in fall 2013.

Located just south of Interstate 20 and adjacent to Bowman Springs Drive has three ponds, one of which is complete with a fishing pier and a terraced outdoor seating and education area. It is also host to several significant native plant communities, and has a high bluff located on sandstone outcroppings with dramatic views, including one as far away as downtown Fort Worth. From a parking lot, visitors can access the preserve via a concrete walkway and a boardwalk, which leads to the fishing pier. Several picnic tables have also been installed along the concrete walkway.
