We are wondering what neighborhood or area is best to live in close to John Peter Smith Hospital. Hopefully within a 20 min Drive...Any thoughts??

Try the neighborhood along Forest Park Blvd. I have never been able to afford it but, the homes have a unique charm and they donot look like the average cookie cutter homes. They have an exemplary elementary school Alice Carlson, shops, etc. I drove through it one day and was amazed at the architectural detail on some of the houses.

Arlington Heights. It's around Camp Bowie just north of I-30. Cute old homes and a really fun community!

Fairmount and Ryan Place. Both VERY close to JPS, safe and homes with tons of character. Fairmount is a little more funky. Ryan Place is more established. Check them both out.

Thanks for the input I have been leaning towards looking at Arlington Heights after looking at maps...I have never been to fw and will explore a bit in a few months to get a feel for the area. Thanks!

When exploring, make sure you stay west of 35W.

OP, there are good and bad spots in every part of Fort Worth, as with any city. When looking at neighborhoods, use Fort Worth's C-D page to find the info about them as well as Googling the names to find crime info and such. Then, when you come down to explore, drive the different areas to get the feel of each. . Don't let people scare you from entire quadrants of the city; there are some good neighborhoods in each part of FW--even east of 35W. Woodhaven comes to mind.

Do a search here. Woodhaven HOUSES are great, but the surrounding low-income apartments have many issues...
