Minus a 2 year stint in California, I’ve been making the drive between Austin and Dallas for 14 years now, and I haven’t been quite as excited about watching a Dallas construction project finish as when the Klyde Warren Park opened up. They took the part of Woodall Rogers Parkway that cuts through downtown and made a floating urban park out of it so there’s actually green space in Dallas.
What’s extra cool is that they offer yoga classes throughout the week for FREE out on the Great Lawn as well as other bootcamps, tai chi, meditation and even dog training. On the morning I went, they offered both a yoga class for adults and a Yoginos yoga class for kids. Can you spot my little runt who decided he didn’t want to follow directions?
In addition to group classes, there’s a pretty sizable children’s area with splash pad, food trucks, dog park, games and books, plenty of seating and even an upright piano for public use. It looks like they’re building a covered stage area too.
Parking was pretty easy since we got there early, but as a heads up, some of the parking meters have a 2 hour time limit. I’ll be looking forward to future visits. And maybe next time, I’ll ditch the kid so I can participate in yoga with the adults (even though the kids yoga was entertaining).
Nice job, Dallas. Super impressed with the layout and use of public green space. We’ll be back for sure!
