Elmer W. Oliver Park

Gorgeous setting. Truly a "nature" park - no brightly colored playground, only trails, wildflowers, a pond or two and a treehouse lookout. Discreet plaques give you just enough information about what's on the trails around you, larger maps help you find your way. Perfect place to spend an afternoon.

Excavator play is great! We had fabulous support from Casey in setting- up our appointment, in communicating weather status and in greeting us at arrival. Scott provided expert training and friendly encouragement during the operating session. We had visited the sister operation in Las Vegas...MoreThank you for the positive words! We hope that you visit us soon and see what other features TexPlex Park has to offer. Our UTV Thrill Ride and Sporting Clays Course would be my recommendation with the Spring weather approaching!

Top O'Hill Terrace

"Known As Vegas Before Vegas" Decorative wrought iron gates flanked by native sandstone guard towers lend an aura of mystery of mystery and intrigue to the location of what was in the 1930s and 40s, a gambling ground rich and adventurous, mischievous,famous and infamous.

I would call this a presentation more than a tour. So wasn’t what we expected but still love the history and Vickie the researcher and presenter.

She has dug extensively into the secrets and history of the Top of the Hill hidden casino. She has a few artifacts. Put together a slide show and has a wealth of information to share.

She does take you outside to show where tunnels are believed to be. Show buildings and the old pool.

But as far as seeing any old casino rooms or tunnels.... that isn’t part of the tour which was disappointing. Still.... we were happy to learn the history and impressed with what Vickie has discovered with no financial backing. If resources stepped up and helped.... the tunnels could be dug and discovered. Uncovering part of our history.

I wouldn’t take children to this. You are sitting and in a small room listening to what Vickie has learned and watching her slide show. So unless your child is a history nerd.... leave them at home and come enjoy this yourself.

I hope everyone will spread the word about this hidden piece of history so the right person or company can provide the resources necessary to dig and uncover the tunnels etc.

I have been a season pass holder for 3 years, and this one the favorite at one time,but this year has been very poor. I have notice a lot of lacking,cleanliness of the park ,bathrooms disgusting,food (nacho cheese cold) hots dogs not cooked, The lifeguards not very attentive (not all) but a very few. The last 3 visit have my decision that my family will go elsewhere. My last visit Friday July 28, 2017 Movie night, I went in the bathroom, 1st, a customer had her 2 boys standing in the seats (completing naked) 3 years maybe bathing the sink I left afterwards went back in to wash my hands sinks full of hair (disgusting) paper towels toilet paper everywhere.

This was our first time to play an escape game. From the time we walked through the door, the staff was super helpful and fun.
We ended up in a Mad Scientist's Laboratory. The clues were challenging, but well-organized. I had confidently predicted an escape time of 12 minutes....so I was very relieved when we finally found our way out at 52 minutes and 27 seconds.
The clues, sights, and sounds make for a really intense time of fun.
We look forward to going again as their Western theme escape and Secret Agent them escape are available.

Very comfortable dog park for people and their four pawed friends. Loaded with shade trees and benches. Large wooded walking/sniffing area adjacent to the open grass space. Probably the cleanest dog park I've ever seen- kudos to the city of Arlington and, to all the polite patrons for taking good care of their pooches. Enjoy!

Took the entire baseball team here for the end of season awards lunch. Plan on not seeing your kids for hours. Dodgeball arena was a huge hit. Flipping into the foam pit was a close second. Visiting with the other parents was difficult because it is very loud in the trampoline room. Well worth the struggle to communicate to see the kids have such a good time. Great concept.

Try the Atomic Blonde, a wicked blonde, IPAin't, a cucumber taste, O.M.G. Blonde, a blonde with clover honey, or any of their other specialty brews that you might find interesting. Start a conversation with any of the staff, they all have interesting stories, or maybe with Derek, the owner. Did I say we had fun?...well, of course!
