Living the 9-to-5 office life in Fort Worth can catch up with you quickly, and sometimes you need a nice weekend hike or a pleasant afternoon picnic to escape. These parks in and near Fort Worth, Texas, are ideal destinations for recharging and reconnecting. And there’s no better vehicle for getting to your getaway spot than a new Equinox or Trax from Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet.
Eagle Mountain Park
The beauty of Texas is on full display at Eagle Mountain Park. A sprawling property of over 400 acres of lush landscapes, the park is a thriving habitat for all sorts of birds, animals, and plants. Your best bet for taking as much of it in as possible is the well-maintained trail system, which includes six different trails covering more than five miles. Don’t skip the quarter-mile Overlook Trail, which offers a beautiful view of Eagle Mountain Lake.
Sometimes the best escapes are the ones right in front of you. Trinity Park is located right outside the Fort Worth Cultural District, which means it’ll be easy to find a parking spot in a city-savvy Chevrolet Trax. The park covers 252 acres and offers everything from 40 miles of trails to kid-friendly playgrounds to a peaceful duck pond. At Trinity Park, you’ll be removed enough from your hectic routine yet close enough to your city that you’ll want to visit whenever you get a chance.
Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge
Strap the kids into your Chevrolet Equinox for an unforgettable day at the Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge. You could plan a weeklong family getaway entirely around exploring the site’s 3,621 acres and 20 miles of hiking trails. The star attraction is its majestic bison herd, which you can not only see but support with your membership to the Friends of the Fort Worth Nature Center & Refuge. Buying a top-level membership earns you a behind-the-scenes tour at the Nature Center, or you can experience a one-of-a-kind bison hayride.
Whenever you feel like it’s time to take a break, you’re always just a short drive away from a great park near Fort Worth. No matter how short your trip may be, make it a journey worth remembering with the convenience of the Chevrolet Equinox or the comfort of the Chevrolet Trax. These and other great SUVs are available at Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet, your family-strong DFW dealership since 1922.
