A New McDonald’s Is Now Open in Fort Worth

Since 1979, the southwest corner of Boat Club Road and Lake Country Drive has been home to a laid-back one-story 6600-square-foot commercial building. Now it is home to the new fast-food restaurant belonging to the world’s largest fast-food restaurant chain. This McDonalds is one of 2 new locations in North Forth Worth and the other will be three miles away on North Saginaw Boulevard. Lake Country Christian School is to the north as well as the new Lake Country Elementary School and a CVS store.

The new Fort Worth McDonalds is expected to be complete by November 2023.

Historic aerial images of this location go back to the 1950s. Back then, Fort Worth had a population hovering around 300,000. Boat Club Road was a dirt road and the site had no development. In the same decade, a row of high-voltage power lines appeared to the east of the site. In the 1970s, Lake Country Drive was built as well as a water tower and the razed commercial/office building that has been replaced by the new McDonalds.
