Texas Parks & Wildlife Grant

Northfield Park Sign

The City of North Richland Hills has been awarded a $500,000 grant from the Texas Parks & Wildlife Commission for the Northfield Park renovation project. The grant will help fund redevelopment and improvement of the park’s aging facilities including lighted softball fields, sand volleyball courts, lighted tennis courts, playground, basketball court, pavilion, trails, landscaping, picnic tables and benches, as well as rainwater collection system and drip irrigation.


Northfield Park, located at 7804 Davis Boulevard, is one of the city's oldest parks, having opened in 1985. Throughout the past year, the Parks & Recreation Department sought public input regarding improvements to the 34-acre park, including an online survey and community meetings. Renovation of the park is expected to begin this fall. The park will be closed during construction, which is anticipated to take one year.


The $500,000 Texas Parks & Wildlife Commission grant is being provided through the state Texas Recreation & Parks Account and Federal Land & Water Conservation Fund. The Commission approved $16 million in competitive park grants to help fund projects that will create and enhance outdoor recreational opportunities for 37 communities across the state. North Richland Hills was only city in Tarrant County to be awarded grant funding this year. Along with the grant, the park renovation project will be funded by half-cent sales tax for park development and park impact fees, which are paid by new developments.
