Tandy Hills Park Public Meeting

A public meeting to review the environmental Master Plan for Tandy Hills Nature Area will be held Wednesday night at 6 p.m. at Sycamore Community Center at 2525 E. Rosedale St.

This is Part 2 of a presentation by an environmental consulting firm that has done an extensive survey of the park. They will present their findings and recommendations at this meeting. They will also present the results of the Parks Department questionnaire that received more than 400 responses.

As Don Young of Friends of the Tandy Hills Nature Area writes, "The large number of responses illustrates to me how beloved this park is to the nearby community and far beyond. More importantly, it sends a clear message to the City of Fort Worth Parks Department to ACT on the Master Plan. Studies are great, questionnaires are informative, dialogue is important, but now we want, we need, real ACTION."

If you love Tandy Hills Park, please attend and share your specific concerns with the Parks staff. For more info, please contact Karen Wright, Project Manager for the Parks Department at (817-871-5391.
