Oakmont Park is a beautiful park with a lot of natural spaces. It is part of the Trinity River Trail that stretches about 6 miles. Located in the South West area of Fort Worth, it is bordered to the west by the Clear Fork Trinity River and the city of Benbrook. Within the actual park there is only about 1.5 miles of paved trail. However, it links to other trails once you cross the Clear Fork Trinity River.
