Downtown Fort Worth, Inc. has a new vision for Heritage and Paddock parks.

The restoration project for Heritage Plaza — which was built to commemorate the US Bicentennial (which occurred in 1976) but was closed for safety reasons in 2007 — was approved by City Council in March 2020.

After seeking citizen inputs on the park projects last year, DFWII unveiled its current schematic plans for the greater Heritage and Paddock Park improvements on Oct. 5.

Among the priorities: Improved walkability and pedestrian access, a canopy walk that descends through the tree canopy and river stairs that conjoin the canopy walk and Trinity River Trails.

The parks are slated to open in November 2026, and the project is estimated at around $34 million.
