Thanks in large part to the efforts of Mr. Joe Burnett and Mr. Jeff Davis, Burnett Park has evolved to meet the needs of the community over the last half century. Today, Burnett Park continues to be a community asset boasting several lighted baseball, softball, tennis, and basketball courts in addition to a community center, concession stand, bleachers, playscape, and ample parking. The acquisition of the 4.61 acreage in 1994 lead to the construction of two new baseball diamonds. New residential developments are planned as part of Burnett Park's landscape.  More
In 1919, S. B. Burnett donated some of his downtown Fort Worth acreage to create an urban park that would memorialize his two children. Today, Fort Worth's Burnett Park is a pristine tree-lined plaza that once housed Henry Matisse's bronze "The Backs" sculptures and now features Jonathan Borofsky's "Man With a Briefcase". In May of 2010, the park will come alive with a planned series of concerts, movies, and other events at the park. In the shadows of Fort Worth's tallest building, Burnett Plaza, Burnett Park was the setting for a memorable scene of CBS's Walker, Texas Ranger starring Chuck Norris.  More
