Mayfest runs May 2-5 in Trinity Park. Admission is free on Thusday.

The Mayfest area of Trinity Park will be closed to the public April 22-May 8 for the 47th annual Mayfest setup, takedown and the four-day family festival.

The Trinity Park Loop Trail provides a lighted detour connecting the Trinity Trail north and south ends of the closure. The Loop Trail ensures that trail users can continue to use the trails while the Mayfest portion of the park is closed.

In addition, beginning April 22, the area of Trinity Park where the Dream Park is located will be temporarily closed in preparation for Mayfest. The Dream Park will be open to all Mayfest attendees during the festival and will reopen to the public on May 9.

Seven parks with playgrounds can be found within a one-mile radius of Trinity Park, providing great options for residents and visitors seeking a playground.

The mission of Mayfest is to raise and contribute funds for the Trinity River, surrounding parks and community programs. Mayfest has returned more than $7.5 million to the Fort Worth community over its 47-year history. Examples of improvements Mayfest has funded include LED lighting and structures throughout Trinity Park, the Phyllis J. Tilley Memorial Pedestrian Bridge signage and landscaping, as well as five trail connections along the Trinity Trails.

To learn more about park access, contact the City of Fort Worth Park and Recreation Department at 817-392-5700 or Mayfest at 817-332-1055.
