Fort Worth and Tarrant County are dynamic, fun, hip and culturally diverse places to live. Why not celebrate that? “Where I Live,” a new and regular series, will explore the neighborhoods of Fort Worth and Tarrant County with interesting stories straight from the people who live there.
Located in East Fort Worth with easy access to I-820 and I-30, the Lakes of River Trails is a place I had always dreamed of living in, and I have finally found a place to call home.
In 1852, members of the Tandy and Hall families of Tennessee settled in what later became Polytechnic Heights.
During my 12 years of living here, my neighbors have gotten used to seeing me and Tater, my dog, walk the neighborhood almost daily. I have gotten to know my neighborhood from a different perspective than just zipping through in an automobile.
Looking out the window, there’s a constant parade of people and their dogs. Not sure if every resident here owns a dog, but Linwood is the biggest dog-loving community we’ve ever seen. And, a place with this many dogs can never be an unhappy place.
