Tandy Hills Park Expansion
City Councilwoman Kelly Allen Gray, who represents District 8 on the east side of Fort Worth, said “the stars aligned” to make the purchase possible through a combination of community support, city funding and Total’s willingness to sell. Thanks to the deal, the Tandy Hills area now spans 230 acres.
“It made perfect sense to spend those dollars back in a place where there really was concern about oil and gas and trampling that beautiful area,” Gray said. “There are not many urban cities that can say they have original prairie land, and in Fort Worth, we have it right in the middle of the central city with a beautiful view of downtown. It’s utopia.”
