Overton Park is the heart of the community, a linear green space with tennis courts and trails that runs alongside Tanglewood Elementary.

There are annual parades, parties, and community clean-up days hosted by the neighborhood association. Neighbors say hello and the crime rate is among the lowest in Texas.

The River Hills, Tanglewood, & Overton Park, Fort Worth Real Estate Markets

Modest and minimalist; mostly ranch-style homes plus some mid-century designs and colonials. Houses are generally low-slung and single-story, although it’s possible to find two-story options as well. Lots are large and lawns are beautiful. Home styles vary greatly, and so do the prices.

The neighborhood’s understated architecture complements its quiet character and family-first personality—although you will also see shiny, supersize new builds on lots where the original homes have been razed. A close proximity to TCU helps to stabilize property values and ensures a proliferation of purple when football season arrives.

The Allure

Leafy trees and trails, top-notch schools, and a genuine sense of community. Gracious neighbors, safe streets, and abundant parks create a near-perfect setting for raising a family.

The area’s central location enhances its all-ages appeal, making it an ideal jumping-point for exploring the city’s newest restaurants, coolest shops, and most vibrant entertainment. It’s a coveted address by any measure.
