Klyde Warren Park announced that Jacobs has donated $8 million to the project that will expand the beloved greenspace 1.65 acres to the west over Woodall Rodgers Freeway toward Field Street.
Built over the recessed Woodall Rodgers Freeway, Klyde Warren Park is an innovative deck park that bridges uptown and downtown Dallas.
Dedicated to connecting the community and enriching lives, Klyde Warren Park hosts more than 1,300 free programs and events each year. In addition to its fitness and educational offerings, the Park also hosts movie screenings, festivals, concerts, and holiday celebrations. Major features include a children’s park, dog park, great lawn, performance pavilion, restaurant, reading and games room, and five water features. Plans for an expansion will add 1.7 acres to this 5.2-acre deck park, which is built over a highway and has created a true town square for the City of Dallas.
