Part of Trinity Park to be closed for Mayfest

16 Apr 2022 2:05 PM | Anonymous

The Mayfest area of Trinity Park will be closed to the public Monday, April 18, through Wednesday, May 11, for Mayfest setup, the four-day festival and teardown.

The 50th anniversary edition of Mayfest is scheduled for May 5-8 in Trinity Park.

Park visitors who may be affected by the temporary closures include trail users, cyclists, runners, playground visitors and others. There is another playground at the north end of Trinity Park that will remain open during this time. Here are some details:

Trinity Park Loop Trail. This trail provides a lighted detour connecting the Trinity Trail north and south ends of the closure. The Loop trail ensures that trail users can continue to use the trails while this portion of the park is closed. Trail users will also have continuous trail access by using the trail on the East Bank of the Trinity River. Access to this trail and crossover points are at Panther Island Pavilion, Rotary Park and the Mistletoe pedestrian bridge.

Dream Park. The area of Trinity Park where Dream Park is located will be temporarily closed. Seven parks with playgrounds can be found within a one-mile radius of Trinity Park, all providing great alternatives for people looking for a playground. Dream Park will be open to all Mayfest attendees during the festival and will reopen to the public on May 11.

Mayfest has returned more than $7.5 million to the Fort Worth community over its 50-year history, which includes improvements to the Trinity River trail systems and Fort Worth parks. Examples of improvements Mayfest has funded:

  • LED lighting structures and metal shade pavilions throughout Trinity Park.
  • Phyllis J. Tilley Memorial Pedestrian Bridge signage and landscaping.
  • Five trail connections along the Trinity Trails.
