Be a part of the future for Heritage Park. Join us next week for a virtual public meeting to learn more and give your feedback on the reopening and revitalization of this historic site.
Heritage Park, which includes Heritage Park Plaza, sits atop the Trinity River bluff where the original Fort Worth was built. Located northwest of the Tarrant County Courthouse, the park serves as a connection between Downtown and the Trinity River.
The Plaza has been closed since June 2004, fenced from public use due to safety concerns.
If the Heritage Park bluff could be improved to include a beautiful, fun, and easy-to-use connection between Downtown and the Trinity River, that transition would better serve the public’s use of the Plaza. The Fort Worth City Council, Tarrant County, Downtown Fort Worth Initiatives, Inc., and several other groups have been working to improve Heritage Park and reopen its Plaza.
Renovation plans and construction drawings to restore the original Heritage Plaza are 95% complete, and this project is “shovel ready.” The broader area’s planned improvements are needed to ensure that Heritage Plaza no longer operates in isolation from both the River and Downtown but serves and is served by both.
Downtown is everyone’s neighborhood, and this park will become great amenity to the Fort Worth community and its visitors. Your feedback is an important piece of this project. We hope you will join us for a meeting, and help us spread the word!
