North Richland Hills, Texas began life as a land grant town in 1848 and for a hundred years was a sleepy farming community. Today, after annexing some of the surrounding towns, North Richland Hills is the third largest city in Tarrant County with a population of close to 70,000! It has quadrupled its population in the last forty years, with constant homebuilding and renovating that Texas Hardwood Flooring is glad to be a part of.
The popularly-called “NRH” has a business-friendly environment where dozens of new businesses open each year, and was recently recognized as “one of the 10 best neighborhoods in DFW” by the Dallas Morning News. What makes it that kind of place? Well, to start with, the citizenry is proud of their city services, from police to parks & rec. There are 34 parks of varying sizes covering 800 acres, and over thirty miles of hiking and biking trails. The amazing NRH Centre is a mecca for fitness, aquatics, senior activities and meeting/banquet rooms.
The NRH Athletics Division offers year-round adult and youth leagues for various sports, as well as special events that offer access to an “active lifestyle” for the citizens of North Richland Hills. Additionally, youth sports camps are offered during the summer to provide healthy experiences for the kids of the region.
One of the great private facilities of North Richland Hills is “NRH20,” a huge and stunning water park covering seventeen acres with pools and slides and water trails and the attendant amenities.
The city is committed to backing the arts and is known for its public art installations – there are eighteen permanent pieces on display. In addition, there is a constant call for art from around the world to be shown here, in all media, from oils to sculptures to mosaics. Not only that, but the North Richland Hills Public Library, which is a first-class facility, sponsor The Maker Spot. This is a 4,500 square foot space on their second floor where library patrons can create, collaborate and innovate: drawing, painting, sculpting, quilting, leatherworking … you name it, you can probably work on it, or learn how to, in this amazing place.
Each Spring, North Richland Hills sponsors a Sounds of Spring Concert Series – six Friday nights of free live music!
