Such a calming, peaceful and shockingly quiet urban park in the middle of a major city. There are plenty of seats outside for you to sit back, relax and calm your senses. Looking up and watching the clouds slowly drift past the maze of skyscrapers is always a great experience. Going inside of the faith tower itself is even better as what little noise was present outside, is completely muted. This truly is a place for all faiths to simply join together and take a collective break, highly recommend if you’ve been walking around downtown and need to rest.

This is a special small garden among busy city streets. It’s well designed with waterfalls, pretty landscaping, benches and tables for your rest, meditation, or quiet time. It’s like a jewel in the city. No dogs allowed though which is understandable for the purpose of this garden.

Really neat, peaceful experience. I was drawn to visit the beautiful spiral windows, and I was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful and serene courtyard as well. I also appreciated the ability to write gratitude cards and hang them in the chapel. A nice moment for reflection. Outside there were small cafe tables to relax, the sound of running water- large rushes and small trickles, and the opportunity to read to various scriptures and read historical plaques. The golden circle is quite the photo op- very photogenic. Thank you for creating such a beautiful reminder of the awesomeness of our Lord.

A very lively park, full of life. My 16 mo old had a good time at the splash pad. Lots of food trucks offering a decent variety of options. Lots of shade and furniture to sit and eat. Of course, what’s even better is to spread your own picnic blanket on the grass. Given that the park is on the freeway I expect this to also be a fine place to shoot traffic light trails in the evening!

Back here, and it continues to be amazing! Paid a closer look at the amenities – ping pong tables, mini library, lots of fun for kids. For my 20 mo old, it’s still that splash zone, perfectly designed for toddlers of his age!

Pretty much in the center of the Arts district, Klyde Warren Park adds a nice touch of greenery and open space to a semi-skyscraper environ. It takes what was once just a loud freeway corridor and makes it an enjoyable space for families to share. Food is abundant with the influx of some of Dallas’s exceptional food trucks and nearby restaurants. A short distance from the trolley which in my opinion is a great ride. You can just sit and enjoy the ride or find a restaurant along the way that you might like.

As a Dallas transplant, I wanted to learn more about the city and surrounding area. The Old Red Museum has some great exhibits about the history of Dallas, including many of the people, places, and events that have made it what it is today. I was impressed by how the museum had exhibits on all aspects of Dallas life, from utilities to media to religion. It’s amazing to see how far the city has come! Whether visiting or living in town, check out the visitor’s center downstairs for some great tips on new places to see around Dallas!

The Old Red Courthouse was always magical to me visiting Downtown Dallas! The gargoyles atop are looking down and I wondered who was in there! It is masterfully built and restorations will keep it guarding the entrance to Downtown for many years!! Be sure and visit Old Red now and look at the great exhibits to learn about the making of our big city here in Dallas! Bling Blinky of Texas Shout Out: Native Dallasite! Proud Texan!

Plenty to see in upstairs galleries on history and growth of Dallas. Could have done without an argumentative attendant at front desk. He did not explain the parking validation process clearly, then coped an attitude when I asked questions. Cleaned up his act when I returned to ask more questions. Still, a good museum to visit first in Dallas.

I’ve been to many aquarium. I can not say this aquarium has anything special except one thing. I swear all the fish in the aquariums were interacting with me. Many times I don’t even think the fish can see me. These seemed to be curious about my cellphone camera and me. In fact many came up to close that they were not in focus. I had to take many photos to get a few in focus. I spent hours just interacting with the fish in the aquarium. They were so cute and had so much personality. I loved it!

This is an experience more than a museum. An experience that links your personal experience to that of millions and brings what happened into perspective.

It is one of the most engaging museums that I’ve been to and really pushes the boundaries of what a museum is.

Overall it is a Great museum that is highly educational and easy to interact with. Some museums bore you with endless facts and figures, yet this one was very well designed and was engaging right from the start and all the way until the end.

The subject was respected and touched upon areas that I’ve not seen in other Holocaust museums.

Exceptional place to go to learn from those shameful actions what each one of us can do to make a better world for everyone.
The stories are painful beyond words… There are some that I was not able to finish listening to due to its cruelty way beyond my tolerance point…
From the security point at the entrance, the front desk ladies, everyone was courteous, friendly, ready to share information and assist you in any way possible.
I am already looking up for a second trip to see the parts that I missed due to time constrains.
The visit is worthy and valuable since also teaches that discrimination comes in different shapes and colors and helps to broad instead of minimize the pain that hate can cause.
Without a doubt one of the darkest moments in humanity!!

They are short on volunteers now so some buildings are closed but that us to no fault of their own. Parking is close and handicapped accessible. If you have any questions just ask a volunteer they are very helpful.

Great concept, loved the headphones and it felt like an updated concept of a drive-in theater. Area was very clean…wish seats were more comfortable…we did the lounge chairs and not the deck chair for 2. Food truck, and adult beverages available. Price is a little high for these movies as they are not new release, but it was fun as a one time experience. At $14.50 to $19.50 ea. it’s not something I would do often…maybe as something to do if family in town or a really great movie and it gives me the chance to see it on a big screen again. Portable bathrooms available and very clean…not the port-a-potty you get with outdoor events…much nicer with sinks inside and outside as well to was hands. Overall had a great experience.

Would be good if you bring mat or something to sit. We also had chance yo see a live band performance there but not sure if its there every day. The Children’s Adventure park is a plus for kids as my kids had loads of fun there. Overall a fun place..

Outstandingly picturesque place. It’s a must visit when in Dallas. The grounds are designed so beautifully and the nature surrounds you with peace and tranquility. The trees, flowers and plants give off the most incredible fragrances and everywhere you go is a visual delight. I spent two glorious hours here and enjoyed every minute. Be sure to buy tickets in advance online as there are no in- person purchases at the window.

Absolutely gorgeous! So many beautiful plants & flowers to look at & smell! There were also lots of sculptures, architectural features & seating areas! Perfect way to start our day, as it got hot quickly (it was Labor Day Weekend). I want, very much to return for each season, to see what’s changed. Probably my favorite stop, during a busy day of sightseeing! Will ABSOLUTELY be returning!! 😍😁

Miss Pat was there to greet us and is 3rd generation of her family who was running the Rooming House. The living room, dining room and Oswald’s sleeping area are all unchanged. (as if time stopped that day). A fabulous time capsule you don’t have to wait to open.
SEE IT SOON…as it may not be around long as the city is demolishing and modernizing the area so this fantastic and historical private showpiece will sadly be reduced to nothing more than a plaque in cement or a marker on a pole.
We are so honored to have been able to see this part of history up close and in person.

My husband and I made an appointment to visit with Ms. Hall and from the time we knocked on the door until we left she made us feel like family. It was fascinating to see all the details of the house exactly as they had been since the last time ‘Mr. Lee’ as she refers to him had been there. Even better was hearing her tell the story of being a little girl, watching him play with her brothers, and spending time with him while he resided there. She is not only knowledgeable about the events surrounding the assassination of JFK but her family has a rich history with the city of Dallas that was incredible to hear. We will definitely be back to visit again!

I arrived after hours and without calling before…I was expecting to just take photos from outside, BUT there was an open sign on the locked door, so I called the number. She explained they were closed but she forgot to take the sign down but was talkative. I explained I had been to all the other JFK sites during the day, explaining in some detail where I had been, places like Hardy’s shoe store who NEARLY NOBODY visits and would be leaving Dallas early the next morning. She said something like, “You sure seem pretty knowledgeable about what went on, if you aren’t coming back to Dallas soon, I will give you a tour.” A few minutes later she unlocked the door and I stayed about 2 1/2 hours leaving at 8:30PM!!! She is an EXCELLENT story teller, as well as listener, articulate, passionate, open minded and still curious….really connects on a human level. If you are a JFK assassination buff, DO NOT MISS going here!!!!! As I was leaving she said “You are a wealth of information yourself!”

The breathtakingly beautiful bronze sculpture cattle run is really amazing. This place does not take much time to visit. With just a short stop, at no cost and easy parking, you can enjoy the majesty of the sculptures with a great detailed exhibit. Make sure you go up close to have a good look. Such a lovely body of work definitely gives you the feeling that you are in Texas. Also is very close from the 6th Floor Museum, make sure you walk via the JFK Memorial Plaza on the way!

This is one of biggest public parks in Dallas. I’ve visited this park twice. Once, when I auditioned for X-Factor USA, as it’s very close to the convention center and just recently when visiting my uncle who lives in Heath. This is a very fascinating place. The sculptures celebrate and honor 19th century cattle drives that took place along the Shawnee Trail. The history behind the inspiration of this park dates all of the way back to the 1860’s I do believe. Not only are they the largest of their kind, but the biggest bronze monuments on earth. Many people sued in the early-to-mid 90’s to have them removed, but today they stand as one of the best landmarks in the lone star state. There are about 50 bronze steers total and about 3-4 trail riders accompanied by a beautiful waterfall, green grass, and the central business district of Dallas.

We had a wonderful time here today. We took our time walking and reading and spent about 4 hours in the park. We didn’t cover everything but probably 90% of it. It has been a very long time since our last visit. The weather was very nice 85 and a light breeze. This made for a wonderful day to take our time and really experience more than when its hotter. $10 for parking, veterans discount on admission with ID. Snacks and drinks throughout park. Nice clean bathrooms and exhibits. Plenty of staff for all your questions. Souvenirs and gift shops open. Picnic area. Children’s learning area. Several places to tuck into to cool off as you go.

Had a family day at the zoo!! We went during the beginning of February (yes it was a bit cold) but the animals were all out! We were so happy to see all the animals and get to witness the elephant & hippo chat. Even took some time for lunch and ate by the elephants exhibit.
Parking was perfect.
Price was doable.
Staff were very nice and open to all questions.
Bathrooms were stocked.
Gift shop was equipped with all your favorite animal souvenirs in which our folks from out of state got to take home to show off.
The freeway construction was not the greatest but as soon as you park it is as if you are entering another world!

Texas Native Park is FREE, open during daylight. It is part of George W. Bush Library/Museum center and borders SMU. Basically NO free parking that I could find – so paid parking lot just north of the library&Moody (SMU)parking garage 2 blocks west. Restroom are available in library/museum but you MUST go through security to access restrooms. There are a few plant id signs but only at the north end of park/close by building. There are plenty of benches, level pathways – minimal steps. Pathways are wood chips or gravel. You can access the museum shop &the 43 Cafe without having to go through security or through the museum. You may bring your dog to the park, but you MUST pick up after your dog. Please realize this park is within city of Dallas – Highway 75 is right next to park – you WILL HEAR highway traffic. If you can NOT block out that traffic noise then wear headset or don’t go.

Along with just general enjoyment, this park is a laboratory of learning about nature! So many of our children don’t know the names of our native plants, and they’re really missing out on an important connection with the natural world. Go here and show them! The park is loaded with an astounding variety of native wildflowers, grasses, trees, and shrubs–free for viewing. Although Spring is definitely the most beautiful time, there are interesting things to see throughout the seasons if you take the time to look. The park re-creates different ecological areas common in Texas–Tallgrass Prairie, Savanna and Woodland, etc. They also have implemented a unique system of re-using rainwater run-off that keeps it all onsite rather than entering city sewers. You can download a scavenger hunt from the website, too. This park is a wonderful gift to the community!
