Got land? It could be the next great Fort Worth park

Do you have property or know of property that could be a community or neighborhood park? Have you ever thought about selling your property to the Park & Recreation Department?

The City of Fort Worth has funding available to purchase land. The public can help identify new parkland.

“Parks provide a place to gather, play, reconnect with nature and just be. Parks are the heart of a community,” said Lori Gordon, landscape architect manager with the Park & Recreation Department.

The perfect neighborhood park parcel size is between five and 30 acres (for each five acres, one acre should be outside of the flood plain) and mostly flat. Community park sites should be between 30 and 100 acres (and up to 500 acres) and at a similar flood plain ratio to neighborhood parks. For community park sites, the Park & Recreation Department is focusing on potential sites north of the I-820 Loop.

If you have suitable land or know of potential parkland that may be available, complete a brief questionnaire
