Park visitors can expect the new and improved Gateway Park to be equipped with first-class recreational amenities, making the park a regional destination for outdoor activities.

The finishing touches are being put on Phase 1 of Gateway Park West. The excavation is completed and the area is being seeded for grass.

Phase 2 of the continued excavation will occur in the central area of the park. The design for Phase 2 is nearly complete and excavation is expected to begin during the first quarter of 2018.

This work provides necessary flood protection for Fort Worth and brings Gateway Park another step closer to becoming one of the largest urban programmed parks in North Texas. Upon completion of the Gateway Park Master Plan, the park will be larger than Central Park in New York City, at just over 1,000 acres.
