Klyde Warren Park
Klyde Warren ParkParks & Trails
Klyde Warren Park has provided green space to Downtown Dallas since its opening in 2012. Owned by the City of Dallas and operated/managed by the Woodall Rodgers Park Foundation, this 5.2 acre park serves as a central gathering space that provides free, daily activities to Dallas and its visitors. This park is complete with a dog park, children’s park, restaurants, daily food trucks, and more. The park has welcomed over six million visitors and generated more than $2 billion in economic development in its lifetime.
In 2020, the park announced the construction of a next-generation, interactive “super-fountain,” that will be higher than any immersive fountain in the world. The fountain is made possible by a $10 million gift from longtime Klyde Warren Park board member Nancy Best and her husband, Randy. The fountain, scheduled to be complete in December of 2021, will feature a central island of three stainless steel “trees” from which water will pulse and soar to heights of more than 55 feet in the air. The fountain will come alive in the evening with colorful light shows to music.
Klyde Warren Park hosts annual events that are free and open to the public:
- Memorial Day Music Fest
- Movies in the Park (during the summer)
- Independence Day Celebration
- Tree Lighting Celebration (during the holidays)

“I continue to learn more and more about the offerings of Klyde Warren Park each and every time I visit. The park itself is no longer a hidden gem, but with a host of activities every day, there is a lot to do that many people don’t know about; from fitness to food trucks and concerts to chess, there is something for everyone!”

“The best part about Dallas is the diversity in the neighborhoods. One day we might be jogging around White Rock Lake and the next hanging in Deep Ellum at Deep Ellum Brewery, downtown at the Main Street Garden Park or our own dedicated area at Klyde Warren Park, where I’ve even seen a few movies.”
“The biggest issue is not having enough time to share in all the activities that Dallas provides. Some things I’ve enjoyed doing are happy hours at fun locations, free yoga at Klyde Warren Park, mimosa walks in Deep Ellum, or Late Nights at the DMA. There’s always something to do. The opportunities are endless.”
