Wedgwood Park is our home park. It is the park that surrounds one of our local elementary schools and is the closest one for us to walk to. We often go there when we just need to visit a park but don’t feel like trekking out far to get to one. Though it is a smaller neighborhood park it still offers plenty to. The kids particularly love going there because it has a merry go round.
This park was the very first of this kind that we have been to. The neat thing that I have learned as I read up on this park was that it is the first inclusive park in the nation. How cool is it that it started right here in our own backyard? This playground was named as a National Demonstration Site for meeting best practices for inclusive playgrounds by Playcore. When we first got there the kids, as well as us adults, were amazed by the size and features of this park.
I'm Nicole and my goal is to help families and visitors of Fort Worth connect to nature and come to know and love Fort Worth's green and blue spaces. I invite you to join my family and I on this journey as we learn about the 270+ parks in and around our city.
