Fort Worth’s waterfall puts on a show after heavy rains

Lake Worth filled up and spilled over at about 10:30 this morning, according to the National Weather Service.

The water flowed through Airfield Falls Trailhead and Conservation Park near the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base in west Fort Worth, filling up the creek running through the park and causing the waterfall to fill up, splash and roar.

The lake is one of many area waterways that has been swollen by the North Texas region’s wettest autumn on record.

The lake spills over but does not create flooding at 594 feet, according to the weather service. Lake Worth reached 594.8 feet this morning.

The lake must reach at least 598.5 feet before nearby houses will be affected, officials say.
