The city is great but there are times when you just really start to miss nature. Thankfully there are tons of parks around North Texas that can easily fill your need for an amazing nature adventure. Airfield Falls Conservation Park is a small hidden Fort Worth gem with a natural waterfall that is perfect for a summer day without ever really leaving the city.
The waterfall is said to be the tallest natural waterfall in North Texas. You can take a quick dip in the water but it is pretty shallow for the most part. You might run into a turtle or two in the water so make sure to watch where you step! The park is pretty hidden but you'll know you're in the right place by the massive deconstructed pieces of an airplane that have been taken apart and strategically placed as art. Scattered throughout the park are a few benches that provide amazing views of nature. Fishing, swimming, biking, and outdoor fun are all allowed at the park, making it the best place for a summer day out.
Aside from all that goodness, the park has a beautiful scenic bridge that is perfect to take pictures on. There are picnic tables at the park for you to enjoy a nice day out in the sun or you can bring your own picnic blanket and hang out for a while.
The park is open 24 hours and their most popular times are at noon during the weekday and after 6 p.m. during the weekend.
