Many Fort Worth families are adapting to learning from home. Our Clearfork retailers have great options to help prep your workspace for success. Create the ultimate kid’s workstation with a beautiful desk from Arhaus. Add in a cozy throw from Ballard Designs when they need a relaxing break. Allow your kids to personalize their desk space with notepads, journals, and organizers from Sugarboo and Co. And don’t forget the reusable water bottles from Climate Fort Worth to help stay hydrated during the day!

Time for Recess!

In order to stay focused and refreshed all day, it is important to take plenty of breaks to reset. Clearfork has several options to help break up your day and enjoy time with your family outdoors! Head over to The Trailhead and enjoy a family bike ride with bikes from Fort Worth Bike Sharing. Grab a shaded table in front of Press Cafe and make some fun artwork for your fridge! Spread out across the green space and fly kites next to the Shops at Clearfork. Create your own scavenger hunt all around Clearfork and see who finds the most treasures. If you’re looking for indoor recess fun -- check out Pinstripes BBB for a fun day or bowling and bocce!
