Krauss-Baker Park is a linear park located between an industrial and residential area. It is located in the south west area of Fort Worth in the Wedgwood neighborhood. At the park you will find open green areas with trees, bodies of water and a paved trail that parallels the ponds and creek. The park has been adopted by the local Wedgwood Garden Club. They host nature walks there and monthly trash clean ups. In the winter of 2019, the city planted more than 20 trees in the area to provide more shade along the walkways and to add more vegetation.
