Once a center for dairy farming and sprawling ranches, our native North Richland Hills is now a suburban capital and home to generations of proud Texans. As the third-largest city in Tarrant County, it’s rich with amenities—800 acres of parks, 30 miles of hiking and biking trails, dining, big box and boutique shopping, and entertainment destinations. Yet it is maintained a pleasant, small-town ambiance with its noiseless, tree-lined neighborhoods, distinctive public art installations and traffic signal, and celebrations and community events like the popular Sounds of Spring Concert Series.
By balancing the best of small-town and big city living, North Richland Hills has been renowned by the Dallas Morning News among DFW’s ten best neighborhoods, and a recent citizen’s survey found that an overwhelming 96% of residents rate the quality of life as either “excellent” or “good,” and would happily recommend the city to others. Now there’s a vote of confidence!
Just off the fairways of award-winning Iron Horse Golf Club is Morada Meadow Lakes. Our central location is set amidst tall trees and feels delightfully private, but is still just a half-mile from popular highway routes and thoroughfares, offering ready access to go-to local destinations, as well as the world-class arts, dining, major sports and entertainment that’s so prevalent throughout the Metroplex.
For a nice picnic and stroll, try Liberty Park. And whenever in the mood for some “retail therapy,” the North East Mall is a fine choice, with its 140+ stores and dining options. Also, we love the local dining at Babe’s Chicken, Sweetie Pie’s Ribeyes, Niki’s Italian Bistro, and Joe’s Tavern.
Visiting families, and especially adventure-loving grandkids, will flip for NRH20 Family Water Park, and our beloved, North American Hockey League’s “Lone Star Brahmas” take the ice at the NYTEX Sports Centre. Local high school sports and Brahmas hockey are rooted deeply in the livelihood of North Richland Hills; most of our residents and their children have even played for area teams, the same ones that many of their grandkids play for today!
From Morada Meadow Lakes, it’s all close by, whether sampling local cuisine, experiencing sports and seasonal events, or seeking out indoor or outdoor fun and recreation. It’s also just as easy to hop on the highways or commuter trains and take in the sights and sounds of Dallas-Fort Worth whenever you like. The rich combination makes Morada Meadow Lakes a foremost place for active seniors who want the best of suburban living, with all the benefits of the big cities forever within easy reach.
