A new park to Haltom City, Whites Branch Park, has opened to the public (video of ribbon-cutting linked below). The new park, located at 5290 Western Center Blvd., features two playgrounds, a water sprayground and a picnic pavilion. The sprayground utilizes a recycling water system that is also used for irrigation of the park grounds. A hike/bike trail will connect to Watauga and Fort Worth to the north and eventually will connect with Buffalo Ridge Park to the south.
Effective June 13, 2016, the Haltom City Council approved the amended Smoking Ordinance No. O-2016-013-10, which regulates smoking and tobacco use in Haltom City parks. The Ordinance now states that smoking and tobacco use is prohibited in ALL City parks to include the use of electronic vaping devices. Smoking is ONLY permitted in the parking lots.
Please be sure to properly dispose of your cigarette butts. We appreciate your cooperation in making our parks safe, clean, and enjoyable for everyone.
