Tandy Hills Natural Area (THNA) is a 160-acre (0.65 km2) indigenous remnant prairie located in Fort Worth, Texas. The land was obtained by the City of Fort Worth in 1960 and designated a natural area in 1987. The park is currently managed by the Fort Worth Nature Center and Refuge.
Noted for its unusually complete collection of prairie flora, THNA contains more than 500 native plant species. The show of spring wildflowers is unsurpassed in the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex. The land is a living demonstration of how most of Fort Worth appeared in predevelopment times.
THNA is adjacent to Interstate 30 and less than 5 minutes from Downtown Fort Worth. The fact that it has never been developed and survived into the 21st century in relatively pristine condition is extremely remarkable.
