The Ash Crescent program area is bounded by Sycamore Park and Cobb Park, Riverside Drive, Rosedale Street and Glen Garden Drive.

Fort Worth is in the midst of a major investment in the Ash Crescent community to improve public safety, promote economic revitalization and enhance neighborhood engagement.

The City Council voted to provide $2.77 million in funding to the Ash Crescent neighborhood in southeast Fort Worth as the 2018 target area for neighborhood improvements. The funding comes from a half-cent allocation of the municipal property tax rate to provide capital projects, improve public safety and attract private investment in underserved neighborhoods.
