Our Community

The location of Richland Hills in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex is unmatched. Encompassing approximately 3.9 square miles in Northeast Tarrant County, the City borders the northeast corner of Fort Worth, is less than 20 miles from the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, less than 15 miles to downtown Fort Worth and less than 30 miles to downtown Dallas. The City fronts State Highway 183, State Highway 121, and State Highway 26. Easy access is provided to each via Interstate 820. Maps to the City 
Railroad access is currently available to the City's largest industrial park and commuter rail connects Richland Hills to downtown Fort Worth and Dallas. Very few other communities in the Metroplex can offer this combination of intermodal access to the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex.
