Parks & Recreation

The North Richland Hills Parks and Recreation Department offers a wide variety of facilities, activities, parks and open spaces to enhance the city’s sense of community and the quality of life for our citizens. 

NRH features more than 800 acres of park land, 34 parks, facilities and trails and 30 miles of hike and bike trails. Additionally, the city offers many athletic opportunities, community events, public art pieces and cultural arts programs. 

Share the Trails. Know the Rules. Have Fun. BE SAFE.

Share the Trails Be SafeWhile the Coronavirus Pandemic has brought many difficult challenges to our lives we have seen our community embrace their trails with a significant increase in use throughout NRH.  Our hope is that you will continue, even beyond our current circumstances, to utilize trails for enjoyment and exercise throughout the days and months ahead. NRH has over 30 miles of hike and bike trails incorporating access points on road, in parks, and through residential street connections.

With this increased use we ask all drivers, walkers and bicyclists to be mindful and educated on responsibilities of sharing the trails and roads safely, especially at roadway crossings. Safety on and near the roads is more than following the speed limit and looking both ways before crossing a street. While these are two of the most important things to do, there’s more to understanding how people biking, walking and driving should interact together.

Help your friends and family be familiar with safety, signage and other markers throughout the trails and roads.  With many of our younger community using the trails, some for the first time, it is a great opportunity to educate on safety for all.  Please visit the Lookout Texans Safety Campaign for comprehensive and helpful tools to educate yourself and others to enjoy all modes of travel safely throughout our community. https://www.lookouttexans.org/safety-tips  See you on the trails!
