Walsh is situated on an exquisite Texas native prairie. It has grasses, wildflowers, water, trees and one-of-a-kind topography.
On a day where we celebrate the beauty of the Earth, we’d like to remind our neighbors and all those that may one day call this place home that these assets will always remain a priority and be protected and reclaimed as we build the best neighborhood in Fort Worth. That’s why, since the first work began on Walsh years ago, this community pledged one-third of Walsh’s 7,200 acres to be permanently kept as parks and open green space.
Nature is at the core of what we do and who we are. The Walsh family’s vision for a neighborhood backed by nature started decades ago, when they first began planting native Texas trees to grow in a tree farm on the ranch property. Today, that tree farm is home to more than 16,000 trees. Our neighborhood today is full of carefully crafted native vegetation, prairie grasslands are being restored and mature trees relocated from the tree farm planted to line the neighborhood’s streets, parks and front yards. It may seem a small detail, but take a drive through neighborhoods in North Texas and you’ll notice what a difference beginning a new community with full-grown trees can make.
Walsh is continuing to extend the miles and miles of hike and bike trails throughout the initial and future neighborhood phases, creating a safe environment where children can venture into the wide-open spaces of our community. And, you may have noticed recently the Greenhouse now located adjacent to the Makerspace in Walsh Village. We look forward to offering community, resident and student programming and educational sessions at the Greenhouse in partnership with many of the state’s leading AgriLife experts very soon.
There is a fundamental human need to be outside and we’re lucky that Walsh is a nature-rich neighborhood. We know that people who commune with nature can grow to be smarter, fitter and more creative.
Together, let’s celebrate Walsh’s exceptional commitment to honor the land and the preservation of nature for future generations to celebrate.
