Learn More About Lake Worth

Welcome to Lake Worth, TX! Located in Tarrant County, Lake Worth had a population of 4,584 at the 2010 census. The city is adjacent to, and named after, Lake Worth, a popular recreational lake in the northwestern portion of Tarrant County. Since the early 1960s, many calls were made for dredging the lake and restoring its recreational potential, but city leaders were either unwilling or unable to fund the expensive proposition. This funding problem ended in the mid-2000s, when it became technologically feasible to access natural gas of the Barnett Shale, which partially lies underneath the lake.

A movement of Fort Worth citizens has pushed for retaining a portion of that gas revenue windfall for renovating and developing its public recreational potential. This movement proposes to make improvements such as dredging the lake, setting aside 400 acres of additional city-owned land as green space, building trails and other recreational infrastructure, and integrating the overall area into a “world-class” park such as New York’s Central Park (the city currently operates a 3,000-acre park on the lake’s northern end as the Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge. A capital improvement plan and vision plan have been developed to address development of Lake Worth and surrounding property.

The city of Lake Worth is served by the Lake Worth Independent School District [LWISD].
