On October 19, 2018, The Woodall Rodgers Park Foundation (WRPF) and VisitDallas announced an innovative partnership that will complete the original vision of Klyde Warren Park.
The estimated $76 million project adds 1.2 acres over Woodall Rodgers Freeway, just west of St. Paul Street. This land will be used for a 20,000-square-foot pavilion that will house the state-of-the-art VisitDallas Experience Center, a Visitor Center unlike any other in the U.S., fusing “best in class” customer service with interactive technology that tells the Dallas story. The expansion will include additional green spaces and public gathering spots, assist with the Park’s long-term financial sustainability, and allow the privately-operated park to expand the more than 1,300 free programs and events it already provides annually.
Design & Construction of the project is scheduled to begin in 2019, with completion anticipated as early as 2023.
