Despite their close proximity and similarities, Richland Hills and North Richland Hills have different and unique personalities. Richland Hills is a progressive and vibrant community ideally situated for business in the crescent of Northeast Loop 820 and Texas State Highway 121 in Northeast Tarrant County. The convenient location provides residents easy access to all of the amenities offered within the Metroplex. Major freeways and highways link it to all parts of Texas, the Southwest and the United States, and DFW International Airport, Alliance Airport and Fort Worth’s Meacham Field, one of the nation’s top general aviation/corporate airports, are nearby.
Industrial areas are served by rail, and the North Central Texas Council of Governments estimates that the Richland Hills Trinity Railway Express Station will be the second busiest stop on the line between Fort Worth and Irving. The city also has rider request and express bus service via the Fort Worth Transportation Authority, known as “The T.”
Those who live in Richland Hills also enjoy some of the best housing values in north Texas, with neat, well-kept neighborhoods with large lots and attractive, affordable homes. Residential property taxes are also among the lowest in Tarrant County,
Richland Hills is served by the Birdville Independent School District, and high expectations, along with active community support and involvement, have contributed to the district’s success. Residents have access to an excellent library system and the Parks and Recreation Department offers a wide variety of activities including preschool, youth, adult and senior citizen classes, plus special events and building rental. Three public parks offer tennis courts and jogging trails.
