Gateway Park Receives New Bike-Sharing Location

The newest Fort Worth Bike Sharing station is at Gateway Park, located in the parking lot by the Gateway Park East Trailhead at 5302 E. First St. The relocation begins an effort to expand the Bike-Sharing system throughout more parts of Fort Worth. Be on the lookout for more station relocation announcements in the future. Across the Fort Worth Bike Sharing system, there are 46 stations and 350 bicycles. One station located right on Panther Island at 398 North Taylor Street Fort Worth , TX Gateway Park is a necessary component of the Central City Project. The plan includes excavating over 2 million cubic yards of dirt providing necessary flood storage, a major restoration of the park’s ecosystem, and planting over 80,000 new native Oak and Pecan trees throughout the park. Upon completion of the US Army Corps of Engineers work in the park the City of Fort Worth will then be able to provide new trails, roads, sports fields and other facilities to the park.
