Klyde Warren Park Stages Grand Opening Celebration
The new Klyde Warren Park will hold a grand opening festival October 27 and 28. Already dubbed Dallas’ new “front lawn,” the 5.2-acre park is taking shape as a beautiful oasis in the heart of the city.
Highlights of the festival, which will spread across the park and adjacent arts district, include a dedication ceremony, an outdoor performance by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, a Saturday evening concert on the Great Lawn’s Muse Family Performance Pavilion and sneak peeks at the Park’s ongoing programming. The opening will coincide with the final weekend of Art in October, the annual celebration of the Arts District. Film actor and Dallas native Owen Wilson will serve as the event’s honorary chair.
Klyde Warren Park will serve as a central gathering space for Dallas and its visitors to enjoy in the heart of the city, creating an urban green space over the existing Woodall Rodgers Freeway between Pearl and St. Paul Streets. Plans include a performance stage, restaurant, shaded walking paths, a dog park, a children’s garden, great lawn, water features, an area for games and more.
