Rediscover Heritage Plaza

Heritage Plaza sits on the natural bluff to the Trinity River. Located Northwest of the Tarrant County Courthouse, the park serves as a connection between Downtown and the Trinity River. At 112 acres, Heritage Park, which includes the plaza, is Downtown's largest open space and features some of the most scenic views in Fort Worth. 

Heritage Plaza Renovation Project 

The Fort Worth City Council has committed to reopen Heritage Park Plaza. As part of the larger renovation concept, the City of Fort Worth and DFWI have engaged partners to help restore the plaza while upgrading features, making better connections, and expanding the nearby green space, while preserving the original Plaza concept. 

A New Vision for Heritage Park Plaza

 As part of the restoration efforts, the Design Team presented a Master Plan detailing how Heritage Park could better connect with Downtown and the Trinity River. 

Funding Goals

The Amon G. Carter Foundation, Streams and Valleys, and the Sid Richardson Foundation have contributed funds allowing for a number of charettes and design workshops, structural and geotechnical investigation, and tree and soil survey and design services related to the plaza. 

In May 2014, the City of Fort Worth initiated a bond package that included $1.5M for the restoration efforts.

In August 2016, The Downtown TIF approved an additional $1M towards the project. 

Our total fundraising goal to implement the master plan concept is $25M. 

Help us preserve an important piece of Fort Worth's heritage.
