NEIGHBORHOOD SUMMARY:

Situated on a bluff above the Fort Worth Zoo, Park Hill homes are mostly large Spanish-inspired and Tudor style on circular streets. Park Hill, the central road, offers quaint but lauded neighborhood restaurants like Park Hill Café and Greek House. Park Hill marks the southern edge of the neighborhood while the circular street of Winton Terrace encompasses the other borders.

In 1915, a Fort Worth artist convinced the Fairmount Land Company to contribute 6 acres of land in the area to build a children’s hospital  - the Fort Worth Free Baby hospital. Located at 2400 Winton Terrace West, much of this land was used for raising cows, chickens and fruit trees for children in the hospital. The hospital existed for more than 40 years before it was abandoned. The land is now occupied by homes.
