Las Colinas Parks
Las Colinas is home to various trails and parks perfect for families to spend beautiful Texas afternoons. Provided in each park are Pet Pickup stations which include bags for disposal while walking your furry friends.
E.O. Perry Flower Clock
This heavily photographed showpiece is flanked by 12 mature live oak trees and consists of over 900 manicured dwarf hollies and more than 4,000 units of color which are rotated four times per year.
Located at the intersection of Highway 114 and North O’Connor Boulevard, a half-moon color bed houses the American Flag, the Texas State Flag and the flags for the City of Irving and Las Colinas.
Located on the westbound side of Highway 114 at Riverside Drive, the park is home to the Carpenter Monument which honors Ben H. Carpenter — the visionary founder of Las Colinas. The larger-than-life sculpture was created by wildlife artist Robert Glen who also sculpted the Mustangs of Las Colinas, the largest equestrian sculpture in the world. The park features marble statues of cattle which were donated by the Trammell Crow Company in 1999.
University Hills Parks
Rochelle, Old Rochelle, Flag Pole Hill, Rosita and Wingren Parks can all be found in University Hills. In addition to several flags, Flag Pole Hill is enriched with impressive sculptures named Autumn, Origin, Twist of Fate, Catching a Wave, and New Beginnings. Each sculpture is as unique as the artists that created them.
Campion Trail North is a 7-mile scenic pathway that provides a balance of urban and natural views. The twelve-foot-wide paved path is perfect for biking, running, roller-blading or walking with your pet. Along the way, you might see various species of birds near the Elm Fork Trinity River and don’t forget to bring a sack lunch to enjoy under one of the covered picnic pavilions.

Campion Trail South begins at Dallas County’s Mountain Creek Preserve and extends in a northern/northeast direction for four miles to connect with Trinity View Park. Ultimately, the end goal is to have Campion Trail South connect with Lone Star Trail and to Irving’s Campion Trail to the North.
