Managed by the City of Plano, Arbor Hills Nature Preserve is a great place for dogs to get outside and get some exercise.  There are so many trail options it would take several dog visits to explore them all.  Their are both paved and dirt trails just for pedestrians while bikes have their own trail system.

I got over 2 miles of walking on the paved Arbor Loop and Tower Trail.  This is a place any dog in the Dallas area should visit.  I meet several dogs enjoying this park.

 

The only thing keeping this from being a Prospect's Pick is we imagine this popular park would be extremely crowded on the weekends.  We visited from 9-11am on a Friday and while the crowd was large, the traffic in no way affected our visit.  But we would want a weekend visit experience before giving this park the golden paw of being a Prospect's Pick.
