On August 20, 2013 the Tarrant Regional Water District (TRWD) Board of Directors approved a contract for the construction of the Airfield Falls Trailhead. This stunning new trailhead will be located at 200 Pumphrey Drive in Westworth Village.

The contract was awarded to Struhs Commercial Construction and work is expected to begin this September and estimated to be completed in the fall of 2014.

This trailhead was much-needed after TRWD built a trail to the only natural waterfall in Tarrant County a few years ago. The trailhead will include a new parking lot, picnic pavilions, restrooms, drinking fountains and park benches.

In addition to new recreation opportunities, the project also focuses on another of TRWD’s missions with the addition of a conservation garden. The trailhead will feature native plants so visitors to Airfield Falls will be able to see how and what to plant during different seasons.

The new trailhead will honor the history of the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base (NASJRB) with a sculpture featuring military aircraft components. The new amenities will be a unique way to represent the rich history of the region from its transformation from a Bomber Plant to Lockheed Martin to Carswell to now the NASJRB.

This project would not have been possible without the cooperation and support of the NASJRB and Westworth Village. The tail fin and wings were gifts from NASJRB and Westworth will help with security of the area once the trailhead is complete.
