Dallas’ Klyde Warren Park opens October 27 and 28
Will Uptowners and Downtowners use it regularly?
DALLAS Nearly three years ago, crews broke ground on a space we then called Woodall Rodgers Deck Park -- the over-the-highway park designed to connect Uptown and Downtown Dallas. Now sprouting dozens of trees and a new name, Klyde Warren Park, the green space will officially open to the public October 27 and 28.
Opening weekend will be a free, all-ages celebration. It takes place during Art in October, which is the Dallas Arts District's month-long celebration of events and exhibitions.
Sitting atop Woodall Rodgers, executives steering the construction of the 5.2-acre park hope it will become a regularly visited park for Dallas residents and tourists. Nearby, the Perot Museum of Nature & Science opens in January 2013. Another new landmark this year, the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, opened in March.
The park cost $110 million to build and includes an on-site restaurant, children's garden, botanical garden, dog park, and a performance stage with a lawn sprawling from it.
