Friends, Neighbors & Pet Lovers!
Friends of Oakhurst Park (FOOP) is proud to announce that, on August 9, 2017, the City of Fort Worth Parks & Recreation Department will begin constructing a new sidewalk and installing a new water fountain in Oakhurst Park. The water fountain will be a combination that will be Americans with Disabilities (ADA) accessible and have a pet fountain for Oakhurst pets!
FOOP and the Fort Worth Parks and Recreation Department have been working on this project for over a year. Originally, three Oakhurst neighbors, FOOP treasurer Janice Morgan, and Mark and Sharon Buse, who adopted Oakhurst Park in 2015, donated a pet-only water fountain to honor their friends and neighbors who LOVE pets. Following discussions with the Parks Department, the FOOP Board was able to have the city upgrade the pet-only fountain to a combination fountain that can be accessed by all park visitors – human and fur baby!
Thanks to FOOP and its supporters, Oakhurst Park is one of the prettiest and best maintained neighborhood parks in the city. FOOP friends donate their time, energy, and money to keep the grass green and the flowers blooming.
Oakhurst Park is the heart of the Oakhurst neighborhood. FOOP members have many more improvements planned for Oakhurst Park. So…stay tuned! In the meantime, see ya in the park!

Thanks EVERYONE for spending your Saturday morning working to help maintain Oakhurst Park. This was FOOP's 2nd Annual Spring Spruce Up Oakhurst Park project. As the service organization that cares for Oakhurst Park, FOOP supporters work year round to keep Oakhurst Park a beautifully maintained green space for neighbors to enjoy and children to play. FOOP FOLKS ARE FABULOUS! Please donate today and be part of keeping the grass green and the flowers blooming!
We decided to try to raise $5,000 to make sure we have more than enough to cover all the watering and maintenance bills with some funds left over for emergencies (such as broken sprinklers) and future projects (such as repairs and improvements).
Currently, we are relying on an individual donor to maintain the park. However, that model is not sustainable. We want to make sure that we can keep Oakhurst Park in great condition, even if the generous people we rely on move away, are injured, or have to stop donating. That’s why we raise funds.
100% of everything you donate goes to the park. That’s our commitment to you! Beginning this year, we’ll be collecting bills and specific numbers so that you can see exactly where your money is going. If you ever have any questions about what we use your donations for, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us! You can contact us at FriendsOfOakhurstPark@gmail.com or at www.friendsofoakhurstpark.org/contact.
Thank you SO much, again, for your donations! Together, we can achieve our mission to MAINTAIN, PROTECT and PRESERVE Oakhurst Park for future generations.
