Need a place for rest and relaxation? Tarrant Nature Park is a mini oasis amidst the busy downtown area. The park covers half a city block with labeled native and medicinal plants, so you can easily learn more about our natural ecosystem.

Also, history lovers will appreciate the iron gate that stands at the entrance reflecting the city’s industrial heritage.
