About the park

Klyde Warren Park has become an oasis in the heart of Dallas, providing connectivity between Downtown and Uptown. This unique space is unlike any park in the region, offering over 1,300 free programs and events annually, including fitness classes, live music, children’s activities, movie nights and holiday celebrations. In addition, the park provides table tennis, putting, foosball, badminton, a dog park, and a Reading and Games Room complete with a lending library. Our mission is to provide free programming and educational opportunities for the enrichment of visitors’ lives, to showcase the multitude of cultures and talents Dallas has to offer, and to be a town square where citizens may congregate and create traditions.

Operating the park

Although the park is built, it costs roughly $3.5 million to run the park each year, which the Woodall Rodgers Park Foundation raises through private donations, corporate sponsorships, event rental revenue, and contributions from a PID (public improvement district). Our public fundraising campaign, “I heart the park,” celebrates how much we all enjoy Klyde Warren Park, as well as helps keep the park a safe and active jewel for our city. We’re hoping to raise $125,000 through online donations, social media awareness, and in events in the park, in support of Klyde Warren Park.
