The neighborhood of Oakhurst had its beginnings in 1923-'24, when Fort Worth businessmen John P. King and Henry King began developing the neighborhood through their Oakhurst Land Company, Inc. Just two years earlier, in 1922, the greater Riverside area had been annexed by the City of Fort Worth, which was experiencing rapid growth associated with an oil boom.
Now, Oakhurst is a desirable residential district with Downtown Fort Worth only minutes away. Oakhurst is close to the Trinity River Trails, local businesses on Race Street, and has easy access to I-35. Oakhurst has a great park for family outings, picnics, or exercise. As Fort Worth continues to grow and makes progress on the River East Project, Oakhurst will continue to gain amenities and recreation for all ages.
