ARLINGTON (AP) – Unspoiled nature vistas are becoming hard to come by in the tumult of the highly urbanized settings of the Dallas-Fort Worth area. However, the city of Arlington has set aside 58 such acres on its southwestern fringe — and a trail runs through it.

The city of Arlington on Saturday formally opened the new Southwest Nature Preserve south of Interstate 20 on Bowman Springs Road, on the border with the town of Kennedale Bowman Springs Road.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports the wooded preserve has long been a favorite of fishing and nature enthusiasts, but original plans had called for subdivision for 155 houses. Arlington voters approved about $3.5 million to buy the property, which had been used as an illegal dump, clean it up and keep it as a nature preserve.
