RUSH CREEK (Tarrant County). Rush Creek rises five miles northwest of Mansfield in southeastern Tarrant County (at 32°37' N, 97°10' W) and runs north for twelve miles to its mouth on Village Creek just west of Arlington (at 32°45' N, 10°09' W). The stream is intermittent in its upper reaches. The surrounding low rolling to flat terrain is surfaced by sandy and clay loams that support scrub brush, cacti, and various grasses. The area has served as range and crop land, although considerable urban development has taken place there in recent years.
