Located just five miles away from the city, residents can be at work (or the stores, restaurants, sports events, or museums) in minutes. When they’ve had enough of the bright lights and busy streets, the quiet community of Haltom City beckons them home.
Originally named Birdville, Haltom City was renamed in 1949. Haltom City’s residents enjoy manicured lawns, a clean city, and ample sidewalks. The city’s Parks and Recreation Department offers a wide variety of classes, including belly dancing, oil painting, and karate. The department also sponsors several community events throughout the year, including the Haltom City Stampede (a 1K and 5K race), Spring Fest, the Halloween Carnival, and the annual tree-lighting ceremony.
