Klyde Warren Park is a 5.2-acre (2.1 ha) public park in Downtown Dallas, Texas. The park is over the Woodall Rodgers Freeway, and opened in 2012. It is named for Klyde Warren, the young son of billionaire Kelcy Warren who donated $10 million to the development of the park.

A well designed gem in the heart of downtown Dallas. Though compact, Klyde Warren park contains more than it seems. The children's park is enclosed with just one gate, so it's easier to keep track of young kids. Insider tip, bring a change of clothes or waterproof shoes. No matter how you and your child vow to stay away from the water features, they always prove irresistible. At the other end there are a pocket dog park, ping pong tables, and other games one can explore. The stage and lawn in the center are well used. Whenever the park is open, the sidewalk is lined with food truck. Mostly standard food truck fare, there are a few vegetarian options.

It depends on why you come to visit Klyde Warren. I only suggest going if they have some sort of event or the food trucks there. If nothing is going on, it is just a small piece of grass in the middle of downtown Dallas. It would be great if you wanted a quiet place to read. They have multiple things to do throughout the week to keep it fun, so check the schedule!

A good place for adults as well for the kids.. kids play area is very well maintained.. walk area around the park and different food option via food trucks and nearby restaurants - make this a good hangout place. The only problem hear is the Parking.

Great park in the middle of the city. It is a family place where kids can play in the play ground and good food trucks to grab food. During the summer you can being your dog on Wednesdays for dog ice cream and make friends with other dog owners

Good for toddlers and infants to immerse themselves in playful activities. Good for food cart enthusiasts too but these are generally done for the day before the designated closing time, 3 PM. Good security patrols ensuring even smoking laws are observed. Even Dallas Police keep an eye unobtrusively on the proceedings. You can stroll, sit or even while away using loaner board games. A little bit of road noise interferes with the enjoyment but mercifully no plans for acoustic walls.

Love this place! The vibe is amazing. We frequent this place either as our evening stroll from uptown or a through a trolley 🚎 ride! You will find a lot action going on here. They also host events on a regular basis. You can check the local calendar for the same. There is a play area for children which is a big hit among them. The view of the downtown and uptown is amazing. Highly recommended was a casual evening sit out.

This park is really nice ! Has tons of space ! I love the food trucks on a late afternoon, there’s quite a selection. I’m not to happy about the parking! Actually it sucks! There’s more than enough tables to sit and enjoy the view. Kid and dog friendly, also the trolley stops by every so often. They often have al kinds of events going on.

This is one of my favorite parks in Dallas, along with the park on Main Street. I love relaxing here, usually having a picnic with friends after walking through the DMA. The park itself is very nice, I don't have kids, but there is a playground for children and they seem to really enjoy themselves there. There's also an enclosed space where you can take your dogs and let them run around and play for a bit. It's one of my favorite places in Dallas.

Great green space in the middle of downtown Dallas. Pros: lots going on. I regularly come here on Saturday mornings for free yoga. There are concerts, events, movie nights, etc. constantly happening here. If you get hungry, there’s a classy restaurant and a cheap(ish) pavilion to get food from. Splash pad for the babies is fun, too. Cons: parking, naturally. Can often be crowded if the food trucks are here. Shade and seating is limited on the busiest days.

I had a very good time. The park was very clean. The crowd that attended this outside concert was very well behaved and made sure that there was no trash was left behind. The staff was friendly, engaging and professional. I will definitely go with family again!

The Asian Fest was great in that costumes and the performers was exceptional the children performers were cute and endearing but it was disappointing that there were not many booths exhibiting hand crafts artwork, and no travel information brochures to these wonderful countries. We are very lucky to have people of Asian descent in this part of the country because if you want Community if you want family connection if you want prosperity then we need to learn from them. Also I understand the booths cost an exorbitant amount of money that may be the reason let's not ruin this opportunity to engage with such beautiful and religious beliefs the sacred things of the people is what will strengthen us and help us. I hope next year that once again there will be many booths for crafts handwork clothing... something to take home to remember to inspire ourselves... I certainly do think everybody that came there in the food trucks were pretty good but it's more exciting that you have food from the countries being represented

We really enjoy this park! They have lots of great events and food trucks and play areas, however due to the popularity of the park and how centrally localized it is, it can be very busy on weekends - especially on days with nice weather. So if you want to visit our bring your kids try to go during off-peak hours.

One of the best in Dallas for little kiddos, lunch and just hanging out in the sun/shade! We love the food trucks, Steel City Pops and watching our little ones play in the fountains. A great family place and cool atmosphere in the heart of Dallas. Love it!

Came here for nephew's birthday. Weather was great and it was saint Patrick's day so there were a ton of people out in downtown! But great place for kids to run around on the grass, play on structures and in the water area! Very picturesque...

This is a wonderful park to visit alone, with friends, family, or with your dog. The park has great places to walk, sit in the shade, play in the water features, and so much more. There’s a wide variety of food trucks on the weekends for lunch, dinner, coffee, or a popsicle. There’s also a little dog park with water features to let the dogs play. Check out the park’s website to see what free workouts or cool concerts are happening! I highly recommend the morning yoga classes or an evening walk here to catch the sunset in this downtown gem.

Park itself was amazing. Great shade and lots of activities. The "security" needs to exercise common sense when accommodating a bus load of kids. Twice they tried to get us to load 80 kids into 2 buses in front of oncoming traffic. Better parking needs to be a thought for future renovations. I know a lot of people wish to take bus loads of kids after visiting the museums around the area.

This park is very beautiful. There is a huge play area and water area for kids. Lots of trees and shade and places to sit. Food trucks Galore with all varieties the snow cones are great. They have an area there's books and games for the public to use for family time. There's lots of excitement and a free trolley to ride around town in. Beautiful sights of downtown Dallas.
Coach J | May 30, 2018
Nice park! A play area for the kiddos with water (like a small water park) for those "warm" days in Dallas. Even a spot with tables under the trees with bookshelves filled with books to read and a cart with board games for your enjoyment. Definitely a place to go.

Very cool park built over top of Woodal Rodgers freeway if you can believe it....not cheap. Well done because there's something for everyone - kids pets mom dad, readers walkers- not zombies - musicians and dancers too. Clean public restrooms and world class museums - like 3 or 4 of them - at least 2 for free, and restaurants within walking distance all smack dab in the middle of downtown. parking all around but you'll most likely have a little walking, but plenty to see on the way.

While visiting the Dallas area I have had the pleasure of going to this park. It is home to some of the coolest things. The grounds are well manicured the footpaths are clean and free of cigarette butts. There are ample trash and recycling compactors. There are a few permanent restaurants there that offer nicer seating, out of the sun, but my sights were set on the other side of the park. There is just about a whole side of the park that is dedicated to food trucks. You can find everything from pho, BBQ, pizza, ice cream, shaved ice... The list goes on! From what I can tell, the food trucks stay until 10pm, just before the park closes. The park has a few separate water installations that people can play in on hot days as well as an impressive playground. Both long sides have tables, chairs, and benches under shady trees along the footpaths. The Dallas Art museum is across the street and many points of interest are nearby, many within walking distance.

Really cool park. Coming from a more suburban area it really gives you that city living feeling. Tons of kids seemed like they were having fun in the lawn, playground, and water fountains. Tons of food truck options with plenty of places to sit and eat despite how packed the park was. A lot of dogs there, I brought my 2 large dogs and they had a blast seeing all these new humans. Its not an off leash park but still a great place to socialize your dog or work on distraction training.

There’s always something interesting happening here. If it’s a free concert, yoga classes, a wildlife demonstration for kids, or a super cool exhibit of Asian art and history courtesy of the Crow collection; Klyde Warren Park always delights. Excellent food trucks, a terrific playground for the kids, several restaurants for indoor and outdoor eating, even a little library and some gaming tables. A great park for families, dogs, and anyone looking for a respite from the hustle and bustle.
