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’s maintained a delightful, small-town atmosphere with its quiet, tree-lined neighborhoods, distinctive traffic signal and public art installations, and community events and celebrations like the popular Sounds of Spring Concert Series.

By balancing the best of big city and small-town living, North Richland Hills has been recognized by the Dallas Morning News as one of 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. Locally, we also love dining at Joe’s Tavern, Niki’s Italian Bistro, Sweetie Pie’s Ribeyes, and Babe’s Chicken, a true, Texas staple.

Visiting families, and especially adventure-loving grandkids, will flip for NRH20 Family Water Park, and our beloved Lone Star Brahmas of the North American Hockey League take the ice at the NYTEX Sports Centre. Brahmas hockey and local high school sports are deeply rooted in the lifestyle of North Richland Hills; many 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 the mood strikes. 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.
