City receives grant to renovate Northfield Park

- Deborah Fleck

North Richland Hills received a $500,000 grant from the Texas Parks & Wildlife Commission for the Northfield Park renovation project. The grant will help fund redevelopm­ent and improvemen­t of the park’s aging facilities, including lighted softball fields, sand volleyball courts, lighted tennis courts, playground, basketball court, pavilion, trails, landscapin­g, picnic tables and benches, as well as rainwater collection system and drip irrigation.

Opened in 1981, Northfield Park, 7804 Davis Blvd., is one of the city’s oldest parks. The Parks & Recreation Department sought public input last year regarding improvemen­ts to the 34-acre park, including an online survey and community meetings. Renovation of the park is expected to begin this fall. The park will be closed during constructi­on, which should take one year.
