Fun facts & History

Monticello Park is located in the Monticello Addition in west Fort Worth. It was developed by the Monticello Land Company in the late 1920s and designed by the landscape architecture firm of Hare and Hare of Kansas City, Missouri. In December 1928, the Monticello Land Company donated approximately 4.5 acres in the addition to the city to be used for park purposes. In 1929, the William E. Harmon Foundation of New York City gave a grant of $2,000 to the company for the development of a park within the addition. The Monticello Land Company was the first land development company in Texas to be given this award.  In turn, the company turned the funds over to the city’s recreation board. The grant was to be used for the construction of tennis courts and a playground as well as for beautification work. Much like its gift to Harmon Field a few years earlier, it was specified that the park was to be known as Monticello Harmon Field.  Monticello Park (as it is known today) still has tennis courts and a playground.
