On Saturday, the mayor of Fort Worth will attend the dedication of a park along a creek within Alliance Town Center.
Bluestem Park will feature 50 species of native plants and 500 native trees and shrubs. The park will also include trails with educational signs.
“We rounded up all of the experts we could, agronomists, ecologists, geologists,” says Hillwood Development Executive Vice President Russell Laughlin.
Laughlin says Hillwood also worked with the Corps of Engineers and Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center to try to restore the area to the way it might have looked before the Metroplex became so heavily populated. The 14-acre site aims to recreate the blackland prairie.
