In late May, the Burton Hill Trinity Trails neighborhood found a way to bring joy to the community amid COVID-19. More than 100 families joined, in their own yards of course, to show off their best dance moves during a neighborhood flash mob.

The Burton Hill Trinity Trails Neighborhood Association wanted to find a way to get neighbors together while practicing social distancing. Within a week they brought the distanced flash mob to life.

A caravan of vehicles drove through neighborhood streets with uplifting music. There was even a Fort Worth Police vehicle and Santa Claus joining all the way from the North Pole. Neighbors danced and jigged. The event brought cheer to the lives of residents, and lots of smiles were shared for miles.

Neighbors have also taken other actions to support each other during these difficult times. The neighborhood is bordered by the Trinity River Trails and is filled daily with walkers, runners and bikers. One resident created a Trail of Positivity with handmade signs staked along the trial. The signs feature encouraging quotes and local nature facts. The trail now leaves its visitors filled with much-needed positivity as they complete their walks, runs and rides.

The Burton Hills Trinity Hills Neighborhood Association’s goal is to serve as a connection for residents to their neighborhood and to promote involvement in community activities. This goal continues to be at the center of decisions and plans as the neighborhood moves forward during challenging times.

What is your neighborhood doing to stay connected and engaged? Let us know.
