Facility Info
  • Description At its current state, the FWNC&R covers 3,621 acres and includes over 20 miles of hiking trails, making the park one of the largest city-owned nature centers in the United States. In 1980 it was designated as a National Natural Landmark by the U.S. Department of the Interior. With the ever growing population of Fort Worth and the surrounding communities, having a place to explore and enjoy the outdoors is important for our residents. The FWNC&R is home to many native habitats to discover on a self –guided or staff-guided hike. Staff members offer many programs throughout the year providing opportunities for our visitors to learn about our natural world.
