There’s a new park in the works at Dallas’ Fair Park, and its backers have released images of what is planned.
Fair Park First, Dallas Park and Recreation’s management partner that oversees day-to-day operations at Fair Park, unveiled the renderings for a new 18-acre Community Park Complex to be located on the southern edge of the property.
Fair Park is the home of the State Fair of Texas and the Dos Equis Pavilion.
The new park will feature free and accessible amenities including Wi-Fi, water play, an outdoor performance stage, a dog park, outdoor cafes, exercise equipment, and inclusive playgrounds, and custom play structures.
Putting the ‘Park’ back in Fair Park
Fair Park First said that Phase 1 will feature the creation of an 18-acre Community Park, designed by Studio-MLA in conjunction with surrounding neighborhoods. It will also include the development of a 1.3-acre MLK Gateway Park.
The Community Park is the first step to putting the “Park” back in Fair Park, Fair Park First said. The city said the park is expected to open in 2025.
Dallas Park and Recreation said it has established public-private partnerships with nonprofits, community agencies, corporations and businesses for the management and operations of city-owned venues and facilities.
It said that those connections help its offer unique programs and activities for diverse audiences and interests.
The department said that its other partners include the Dallas Zoo, Dallas Arboretum, Shakespeare Dallas, FC Dallas/Money Gram Soccer Park, Baylor Scott & White Health, Dallas United Crew, Woodall Rogers Park Foundation, National Audubon Society, and Dallas County Audubon.
