The Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge (FWNC&R) is a wilderness comprised of forests, prairies, and wetlands reminiscent of how much of the Fort Worth/Dallas Metroplex once looked. Replete with native flora and fauna over its 3,621 acres, the FWNC&R is one of the largest city-owned nature centers in the United States. Over 20 miles of hiking trails provide easy access to a myriad of natural wonders, and the FWNC&R offers a variety of education programs and hikes for individuals and groups.

The FWNC&R is a division of the City of Fort Worth Parks and Community Services Department and was designated a National Natural Landmark in 1980 by the National Park Service (US Department of the Interior).
