Pull on Your Hiking Boots and Soak in the Natural Side of Fort Worth

The Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge (FWNC&R) is a natural area comprised of forests, prairies, and wetlands allowing you to step back in time and experience what the Fort Worth/Dallas Metroplex was like in the early 20th century.

At its current state, the FWNC&R covers 3,621 acres and includes over 20 miles of hiking trails, making the park one of the largest city-owned nature centers in the United States. In 1980 it was designated as a National Natural Landmark by the U.S. Department of the Interior. With the ever-growing population of Fort Worth and the surrounding communities, having a place to explore and enjoy the outdoors is important for our residents.

The trails at the Nature Center provide a close viewing of acrobatic insects, blooming wildflowers, aerial shows from birds, and much more. Join us for a hike and experience all these things for yourself and learn about what makes the Nature Center special. Hikes not designed for organized groups as there’s only room for a maximum of 15 participants. Get your spot today!

At The Depot Apartments in Fort Worth, Texas, we pride ourselves on informing our residents about all the upcoming events our beautiful community has to offer. Don’t hesitate to join this event on Sunday!
