Fair Park Tips (41)

Fair Park is one of best...

Fair Park is one of best places in Dallas. Becky and I spent an entire day there. At Fair Park there are a number of buildings that surround a wide avenue. The buildings contain different museums. Becky and I tried to see it all in a single day. We had fun but walked our legs off.
My favorite things at Fair Park were the Aquarium, Natural History Museum, Science Museum with hands on stuff, and Age of Steam Train Museum. There are is a place in center where there are walkways over a lake. The side walk goes over the water with flowering water plants all around. You walk surrounded by pickerel rush and water lotus.

Fair Park

Built for the Texas Centennial in 1936, the 227 acres is on the National Historic Trust and is largest collection of Art Deco fair architecture in the nation. It houses museums and special events (including the State Fair of Texas every fall, a must-do if you're in town) but just looking at the buildings is fun in itself.

There is rather an interesting interwoven terracotta looking pathways at the north and sound ends of the lagoon and unusual arches in the water.

Children's Aquarium

Small but still very nice aquarium at Fair Park. It's not as nice as the Dallas World Aquarium but for its price ( $8) it probably a better value. Definitely the best attraction at Fair Park.
