Gear up for first Rolling Town Hall of the season

rolling town hall

Grab your bike and bring your ideas for a better Fort Worth as Mayor Betsy Price begins a fresh season of Rolling Town Halls at 5:30 p.m. March 18 at the Fort Worth Museum of Modern Art, 3200 Darnell St.

This ride will give participants a behind-the-scenes look at the Cultural District. Even longtime Fort Worth residents will see aspects of the district that are new to them.

Besides rolling past the major museums in the district, riders will view the site of the proposed multipurpose arena adjacent to the Will Rogers Memorial Center and take a water break in the beautiful Japanese Garden at the Fort Worth Botanic Garden.

Don’t own a bike? Fort Worth Bike Sharing will provide a promotional code that allows free bike rides for this event.

Rolling Town Halls will be scheduled in each council district over the coming months. Sometimes, city councilmembers join the mayor.

Enjoy a casual ride through a planned route to see different parts of your city and to share how the city can keep improving. The casual bike rides are designed to be family-friendly — no competitive racing here. Rides average five to seven miles, or about 45 minutes.

Typically, the rides start and end in parks, community center parking lots, businesses or neighborhood amenity centers.
