President's Message

Welcome to Mont Del!  We are pleased that you are interested in our neighborhood and would invite you to browse our website to become more familiar with our vibrant community.

The Mont Del neighborhood was established in 1968.  It sits atop two hills in Southwest Fort Worth, although the neighborhood is actually a part of the small city of Benbrook (pop. approx. 25,000).

Hence, city services are provided by the City of Benbrook, as that is the entity for which property taxes are levied.  This proves an advantage to the neighborhood, as Benbrook water is typically ranked near the top in the State in its quality, and the emergency response times for police and fire are excellent.

Further, trash services are more “liberal” and are not limited to the specified containers required by Fort Worth.

Mont Del is comprised of approximately 228 homes, which range from high quality townhomes to homes valued in the millions.  Given its location in the hills, many of the homes in the neighborhood offer spectacular views of either downtown Fort Worth (approx. 8 miles) to the northeast or the setting sun to the west.  Its topography offers a special  treat to joggers and walkers, as roads range from flat expanses by the neighborhood duck pond to steep gradients which ultimately result in rewarding views of the surrounding area.

Despite its feeling of being an insular hamlet, Mont Del is surrounded by the hustle and bustle of commerce, making goods and services within easy reach.  Hulen Mall (the largest in Fort Worth) is located only one exit away on I-20.  Lowe’s, Sam’s Club, Best Buy, and other retailers are located within approximately one mile from the entrance to Mont Del.  Tom Thumb, Target, Neighborhood Wal-Mart, and Sprouts provide groceries within only a few minute’s drive.  Also, restaurants, like On the Border, Outback Steakhouse, and Genghis Grill sit just outside the neighborhood boundaries.
Mont Del’s location is part of its unique charm.  It is surrounded by I-20 to the south, Bryant Irvin Road to the east, the Clear Fork of the Trinity River to the west, and Highway 183 to the north.  This means that Mont Del offers easy and rapid access to many of the major roads in Fort Worth.  Mont Del residents enjoy some of the closest access to the 121 toll way expansion, making the short commute to downtown all the shorter.

Mont Del is a “mature” community, with many of its original residents still in residence.  Several families can boast younger generations having returned to the neighborhood to purchase homes.

Notwithstanding, families of younger professionals now call Mont Del home, leading to a healthy generational mixture and ensuring the continued preservation of quality living.  Mont Del feeds some of the best public schools in Fort Worth, including Ridglea Hills Elementary, Monnig Middle School, and Arlington Heights High School.  Additionally, Fort Worth Country Day School is only two minutes from the entrance of Mont Del.

Mont Del is supported by a strong, voluntary Home Owner’s Association.  The Association has been a voice of the neighborhood since its inception, and has advocated for the protection of the neighborhood in everything from influencing zoning for the preservation of property values to negotiating a lucrative gas contract with Barnett Shale developers.  The Association sponsors programs like the annual Picnic at the Pond, Red Bow at Christmas, American Flags in observance of patriotic holidays, and others to inspire and maintain the sense of community living.

We invite you to visit our beautiful neighborhood and experience the splendor, warmth, and tranquility for yourself.

With sincere regards,

Alice Miller
