Meadowbrook is a large neighborhood in east Fort Worth, roughly a mile wide and five miles long. From a neighborhood perspective, it is further divided into west Meadowbrook, and central Meadowbrook, with the eastern part usually referred to as simply Meadowbrook.
Central Meadowbrook is a neighborhood full of diversity, charm, and friendly people. Like much of east Fort Worth, it is heavily wooded with gentle hills.
Perhaps few neighborhoods in Fort Worth have such diverse housing stock as central Meadowbrook. The earliest homes date from the 1920s and include a mix of craftsman-style bungalows and large, stately homes, some of historic significance. Many homes were built during the post-WWII and mid-century period. New housing construction continued into the 1970s and 1980s, and even today a few new homes are being built on available lots.
Within the boundaries of central Meadowbrook is one of Fort Worth’s four municipal golf courses. Meadowbrook Golf Course an 18-hole regulation facility and considered one of the top 25 municipal golf courses in Texas. The course is busy year-round, but especially in the spring and fall. The rolling terrain and mature trees make it an interesting and challenging course.
Large parks within walking distance or a short drive of central Meadowbrook include Oakland Lake Park and Gateway Park, one of the largest urban parks in the nation. Nearby Quanah Parker Park offers a direct connection to the Trinity Trails, which showcases one of the most natural stretches of the Trinity River to be found in the city.
Central Meadowbrook has an active neighborhood association, which meets monthly. It is a great opportunity to become familiar with the various programs that make our city work and to get to know neighborhood police officers, code compliance officers, and great neighbors.
Public schools serving Central Meadowbrook are Meadowbrook Elementary School, Meadowbrook Middle School, and Eastern Hills High School. A number of well-respected private schools also serve the area. Texas Wesleyan University is very nearby as well.
Central Meadowbrook also has great access to the public library system. There are six libraries within a roughly four-mile radius of central Meadowbrook, with a new library slated to open in 2020. One of the two regional libraries in Fort Worth is a five-minute drive away.
Perhaps central Meadowbrook’s best-kept secret is its great access to the rest of the region. Traffic permitting, DFW airport is less than 25 minutes away. You can be parked in downtown Fort Worth in under ten minutes, where there are connections to TEXRail and the Trinity Railway Express. AT&T Stadium and the Arlington entertainment district are accessible in fifteen minutes. Downtown Dallas is less than thirty minutes away.

One of many famous Como residents was the neighborhood activist Viola Pitts, who served as Chair of the Como NAC and a Precinct Chair. The Como Lake was built in 1889.

- The Fort Worth Cultural District lies across the river to the west of Downtown Fort Worth and is renowned for its high concentration of notable museums such as the Amon Carter Museum, Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, Kimbell Art Museum, Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, and National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame. The area was expanded northward to White Settlement Road in 1986 when Greenwood Memorial Park dedicated striking replicas of the Triumphal Quadriga or Horses of St Mark at its entrance. The area has experienced significant urban revitalization in recent years, especially along West 7th Street, which has been vital in connecting the Cultural District with Downtown. Among the largest recent developments have been Museum Place, West 7th, Montgomery Plaza, and So7. These combined developments, as well as several other smaller infill projects, have brought well over 1,000 new housing units in a mixed-use setting to create a true urban environment.
- Six Points lies west of Downtown Fort Worth, within an area of the city known as the Cultural District. It is the apex of where University Drive, Camp Bowie Boulevard, Arch Adams (recently renamed Van Cliburn Way), 7th Street, Lancaster, and Montgomery Street merge to form the Six Points intersection and neighborhood. The neighborhood has experienced somewhat of an urban rebirth in recent years, with new bars and restaurants opening on and around 7th Street, including the restoration of what was once the Montgomery Wards building on 7th Street, and further development into what is now known as Montgomery Plaza. Six Points is expected to continue its renaissance, due to its proximity to Downtown and housing prices that are more affordable compared with other historic neighborhoods in the Fort Worth central core.
- Near Southside lies directly south of Downtown and is the second largest employment center in Tarrant County, with over 30,000 employees working in numerous medical institutions and other businesses. The district is often referred to by locals as the "medical district" or "hospital district". Today the Near Southside is considered to be one of the city's most up-and-coming neighborhoods. Historic architecture, eclectic restaurants such as Spiral Diner, Hot Damn, Tamales!, King Tut, and Nonna Tata, and the neighborhood's walkability have attracted residents seeking an urban environment. The city of Fort Worth recently declared the Near Southside as an Urban Design District, which requires new development to abide by specific zoning and aesthetic standards that will help to improve the walkability and mixed-use aspects of the neighborhood as it continues to revitalize. Numerous new living options such as historic lofts, townhomes, live+work units, and the rehabilitation of historic single-family homes continue to attract residents to the area.

Sam Rosen (b. 1868–1932) worked in Fort Worth as a traveling salesman and ran a dry goods store prior to purchasing land in North Fort Worth west of the Stockyards. The vision for his new development was to build a community for the workers of the newly founded Swift and Armour meat packing plants. He additionally began the Fort Worth and Rosen Heights Street Railway Company to connect his new development with downtown Fort Worth. Sons Joel and Ephraim continued the Land Company, which remained in the family for generations following. Sam Rosen donated land to several churches and Sam Rosen Elementary School. He reportedly never foreclosed on any of the homes built on his land.
