Another exciting component of the Central City portion of the Trinity River Vision is the revitalization of Gateway Park. The plan will include a major restoration of the park’s ecosystem, provide numerous and diverse recreational amenities and provide the necessary flood storage to ensure the viability of the Central City flood control project. The plans are likely to spur positive economic development around the park. The project meets the needs of the community by connecting neighborhoods of east and southeast of Fort Worth to the Trinity River.
At just over 1,000 acres, Gateway Park will become the largest urban-programmed park in the area. Park-goers can expect the new and improved Gateway to be completely equipped with first class recreational amenities making the park a regional destination for outdoor activities. These additions and improvements are a direct result of community input gathered during a series of public meetings held throughout the City's master planning process.
