West Upper Side Neighborhood In Fort Worth TX
West Upper Side All You Need To Know
When you hear the words West Upper Side, you may initially think of New York City. However, there is a West Upper Side of Fort Worth, too.
West Upper Side sits on the west side of North Henderson Street. Summit Avenue forms its western boundary. Seventh Street runs east to west through the neighborhood. Seventh Street is one of the few Fort Worth streets that crosses the Clear Fork of the Trinity River. Residents can walk to the massive Trinity Park. That is home of the Fort Worth Police and Firefighter’s Memorial, the Trinity Park Duck Pond and numerous playgrounds. The Dream Park Fort Worth playground is south of Lancaster Avenue. Lancaster Avenue marks the southern edge of the neighborhood. Summit Avenue merges with Weatherford Street and Forest Park. This occurs at the northern edge of the subdivision. But Weatherford Street takes you to the northern edge of Sundance Square.
Hemphill separates the West Upper Side from downtown Fort Worth. For example, the Tarrant County College Trinity River Campus is on the opposite side of Hemphill. The Tarrant County Jail, Tim Curry Justice Center, and Tarrant County Lon Evans Correction Center surround the school on three sides. The Tarrant County Clerk’s Office and Fort Worth Public Library Foundation are south of Summit Avenue on the east side of Hemphill. This puts West Upper Side residents in walking distance of these major employers without living in the middle of it all.
