Yard of the Month

The August Yard of The Month winner is 6205 Malvey. Jim and Andrea Blakeney have lived here for over twenty years and between them they have created a beautifully manicured yard. Andrea has the ideas and Jim puts in the work. Thank you for keeping Ridglea North beautiful!

First Responder Appreciation

Ridglea North loves our first responders! Last month, neighbor Stephanie Muzi (pictured above) delivered treats to Medstar, and neighbors Carson and Avery Scott (pictured below) delivered goodies to Fire Station 16.

City of Fort Worth Seeking Input on Short-Term Rentals

The City of Fort Worth is asking residents to provide input to address Short-Term Rentals or STRs, where guests stay overnight for one to 29 days. On their dedicated webpage, you will find resources related to STRs, including FAQs, maps, Council presentations, proposed registration standards, zoning options and more.

Berney Park Playground Update

The update below was provided by the City of Fort Worth Park & Rec Department

The City of Fort Worth Park & Rec Department has recently completed negotiations with a landscape architecture design firm. Their next step is to get their contract approved by the City Council. The project is on the agenda for the City Council meeting on August 8. After project approval, they can get the design consultant started on surveying the site along with the other seven sites the contract encompasses. The playground design and the preparation of construction documents will begin after the survey is completed. The current schedule for completion of the construction documents is April 2023. It will take several months after the construction documents are completed to advertise the project and hire a contractor so it will be summer of 2023 before construction begins. 

Neighbor Spotlight: Adrianne and Eldon Berry

1) Tell us about yourself and your familyEldon and I (Adrianne) both grew up north of Weatherford near Peaster and lived on acreage that’s been in his family for five generations. When our daughter and her family moved back to Ft. Worth from Austin three years ago, I wanted to be near them so that I could help with the care of our grandson. We found our Mary’s Lane home, and it’s a perfect fit for us! Eldon splits his time between Ft. Worth and the farm, and I have my backyard chickens and pets to remind me of my farm roots.

2) How long have you lived in Ridglea North? We bought our home in 2019.

3) What’s your favorite neighborhood activity or event? I love gardening in the Jubilee Community Garden at Ridglea Christian Church. I’ve got two plots there, and I garden with people from the church and community every Wednesday. I’ve learned so much from other gardeners, made some really good friends, and I am growing some delicious vegetables!

4) What’s your favorite thing to do in Fort Worth? We really like visiting the wonderful green spaces that Fort Worth offers such as Airfield Falls, the Trinity Trails, the Botanic Gardens, and the Ft. Worth Nature Center.

5) What’s your best advice on being a good neighbor? A plate of homemade brownies or cookies goes a long way towards building a relationship and starting conversation with neighbors. One of the first things I tried to do was learn the names of my neighbors. I put them in my phone notes so I wouldn’t forget, and I said hello and called them by name every chance I got. Later, I was so humbled and grateful when several neighbors came over to check on me during the 2021 winter storm and power outage.
