Trinity Trails – Oakmont Park

I’m showing you a new park every Friday in 2013. That’s 52 parks (and other outdoorsy spaces) you’ll get to discover with me over the next year! In return, I’d love it if you’ll share your explorations with me!

The Trinity Trails system is probably the best all-around amazing place in the greater Fort Worth area for exploring. Not only is it a breathtaking way to see the city and its outlying areas, it is also free. Here at the Blogospherical Explorer, we are all about free. Especially if it’s beautiful. [And there’s a lot of beautiful + free to be found in and around Fort Worth!] You’ll see new parts of the Trails in each new post.

Oakmont Park

This park is a true gem. It is very easily accessible, yet the park is clean and quiet. The playground equipment is pristine! Also, as the mother of a toddler under the age of 2, I love that the playground is divided into two parts – the bigger part for older kids, and a smaller, simpler section for small toddlers. Genius!

Oakmont Park also has lots of open space to run, play a game, or fly a kite!

The walking trails meander through trees and over two scenic bridges, and each bridge provides access to the two Oakmont parking lots.

Helpful hint: the south parking lot is located a little ways away from the playground area, so if you’re in the mood for a walk, it’s a wonderful stroll. However, if you’re toting a hungry 17-month-old child, diaper bag, and Chik-Fil-A lunch for two, I’d recommend the north parking lot. 😉

If you’d like to do some of your own exploring, you can find a full map of the Trinity Trails system at their official website.

    Hello Mikel. Gee, if ever my wife and I are in fort worth this will be very useful. We both love city parks, and she keeps saying she want to visit Texas. Good luck on your blogospherical exploring! Great title! Best regards.

      Thanks! I may be a little biased, but I do think that Texas is a good place to visit!
