From recreation and sports, to music, festivals and holiday celebrations, the year brings a variety of activities for residents and visitors to enjoy. Located a short drive from the Arling- ton entertainment district, downtown Fort Worth, and DFW Airport, Mansfield's small-town hospitality and charm offer vis- itors a change of pace from DFW's urban attractions and crowded tourist destinations. Visitors to Mansfield can stroll the historic downtown area for shopping and lunch before checking out the regional sites that are just minutes away. The city's natural beauty attracts outdoor enthusiasts to its many parks — especially Elmer W. Oliver Nature Park. Major League replica fields at Big League Dreams (www.bigleaguedreams.com) host tournaments throughout the year, and thousands of people hit the slides and wave at Hawaiian Falls Water Park (www.hfalls. com). FieldhouseUSA (www.fieldhouseu- sa.com) is a 100,000+ square foot indoor, multi-purpose sports and recreation facility offering tournaments, leagues, camps and special events. n A Mansfield: The Perfect Sports Destination Where You Come For The Location & Stay For The Fun W W W.
