HIKE THE TRAILS AT ARBOR HILLS NATURE PRESERVE
Just a 10 minute drive from The Realm, Arbor Hills Nature Preserve offers 200 acres of natural space to leave your cares behind! The natural beauty of the park is unlike any other in the area and you definitely don’t feel like you're in the middle of a DFW suburb! There are lots of hills to bust a sweat or bike as well as easier trails for a casual walk. It's breathtaking during any season and also has a creek that dogs love to romp in. But the key feature is a scenic overlook that soars above the park.
BOATING ON LEWISVILLE LAKE
Lake Lewisville boasts 187 miles of shoreline, 23 of which lie in The Colony providing a shift of scenery north of the city! It’s a popular spot to fish, walk the shores, boat, swim, hike, bike or even just catch a gorgeous sunset! When the weather starts heating up during the scorching Texas summers, Lake Lewisville is a great reprieve from the high temps. There are also some great picnic spots to set up for an afternoon enjoying the fresh air!
SIP MARGS ON THE PATIO AT EL PATIO MEX TEX
A more untraditional way of spending time outdoors but when in The Realm, the restaurants patios are a perfect way to enjoy the weather! Or an ideal spot to unwind after an extended day on the boat! Accompanied by some authentic Mexican and Texan fare, hand crafted cocktails pair perfectly with a warm day!
SPEND AN AFTERNOON AT THE DOG PARK
SPEND THE AFTERNOON AT A DOG PARK
Pup owners can gather in multiple outdoor spots in the area! Two legged paw-rents can spend time in the sunshine while their four legged friends socialize with other dogs in the community! There’s plenty of open spaces to spread out surrounded by trees and watching dogs play is always a fun way to spend the day in our opinion! Pawsome Playground in The Colony is an excellent option or Rosemeade Dog Park in neighboring Carrollton!
