This area of Fort Worth provides residents with quite a few opportunities for outdoor recreation and relaxation.
Marine Creek Lake Park provides residents with two boat access points to Marine Creek Lake. Drop a line and while away the day, stopping for a picnic lunch along the banks. Facilities are minimal here, so come prepared.
For those in search of an exercise-centric park with so much more, look no further than Willow Creek Park on Knowles Drive. The large 65-acre park has jogging trail with exercise
stations, tennis, volleyball and basketball courts, and ball fields for games of softball or baseball. Enjoy a picnic in a covered pavilion before taking the kids for some fun on one of several playgrounds or play nine "holes" of disc golf with your friends.
With something for everyone in the family, Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge of Fossil Ridge Road features everything from over 20 miles of trails for those who walk and run to an educational nature center with baby crocodiles. Visit the wetlands with your canoe, and enjoy the peace and quiet that has remained intact for centuries. Each year in March, the center puts on a fun canoe fest, and kids love showing up on Wednesdays for Storytime. Adults pay $5 for entry, children 3-12 get in for $4 and seniors pay $3. Feel free to bring your dog along, but keep pets
leashed at all times.
