Resident enjoying a walk by Benbrook Lake near Olympus Team Ranch in Benbrook, Texas.



Are you looking for a fun getaway? Benbrook Lake, located less than seven miles south of our apartments near Fort Worth, is waiting with a day of outdoor fun. Originally built by the Galveston District of the US Army Corps of Engineers, Benbrook Lake sits at the merging point of the Clear Fork and West Fork of the Trinity River.

Benbrook Lake holds all sorts of options for fun in the sun. As the weather starts to warm up, try out our ideal day of fun at Benbrook Lake.


What's better than a fresh cup of coffee to start your morning? How about coffee with a side of sunrise on the lake! Grab a brew at Starbucks off Benbrook Boulevard before heading to the pier at Dutch Branch Park. Enjoy your coffee in the quiet, still morning and renew your spirit.

Once the caffeine kicks in, hit the trails at Rocky Creek Park. The park offers hiking trails and horseback trails winding into natural habitats that get you as far away from the city as possible. Easily meet your daily step goal with several miles of trails ahead of you.


Once your afternoon hunger hits, a picnic at the park will work just fine, especially while you are in Rocky Creek Park. For a change of pace, drive back to Riscky's Barbecue. Famous for their barbecue plate, they'll satisfy any size hunger after your morning hike.

After lunch, check out Benbrook Lake's T-Bird Model Airplane field where you can watch or fly a model airplane! Contact the Academy of Model Aeronautics to get started on flying your own model plane!

After a full day at Benbrook Lake, you'll be ready for a quiet evening at home. Don't miss your chance to become a resident of Olympus Team Ranch. Contact us today for more information about our apartments in Benbrook, TX.
