Planet Earth consists of five major types of climates (tropical, dry, mild, continental, and polar) that support more than 8 million species. The Dallas Fortworth area falls under the humid subtropical climate category because of our hot summers, mostly mild winters, and varied rainfall. And while it may not be for everyone, we couldn’t ask for a better place to live.
In honor of the spring season and the recent Earth Day holiday, we want to encourage all of our MCLife community members to take part in some earth-friendly activities. Here are just five ways you can support the environment near our Dallas apartments.
Distance From Dallas Apartments: Varies
What: Groundwork Dallas is a group of people who come together through Meetup to regenerate, sustain, and improve the Dallas Elm Fork Greenbelt and Great Trinity Forest. This typically involves cleaning and restoring local trails and parks to make sure they can thrive and be enjoyed by everyone in the area. Check out their calendar for information on how to get involved.
Wagging Tail Dog Park
Where: 5841 Keller Springs Road, Dallas, Texas 75248

What: We love pets here at MCLife which is why we aim to provide Dallas pet-friendly apartments for all of our residents. It’s also why we know you would love taking your furry friend for a walk at Wagging Tail Dog Park. There are tons of trails, other dogs to play with, and a clean environment to enjoy.
City Lake Park
Where: 6200 Hatchery Road, Fort Worth, Texas 76114

It also makes for a great day trip for your family.

White Rock Boat Club
Where: White Rock Boat Club, 340 East Lawther Drive, Dallas, Texas 75218
