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, the park hosts 1,300 free active programs and events each year. In addition to its fitness and educational programming, the park also hosts free movie screenings, symphony concerts, and opera simulcasts. The park provides a pristine, entertainment-rich green space for people of all ages to enjoy. Major features include a children’s park, dog park, great lawn, performance pavilion, restaurant, reading and game room, and five water features. Planning began in 2004 and was completed in 2012.
