Fair Park will celebrate spring with a series of free programs and activities held March through June. Events kick off during Spring Break, with Yoga each Tuesday evening at Museum Green, located just inside Gate 5 at the corner of Grand Avenue and Second Avenue, March 14.

Additionally, in partnership with Yoga N Da Hood and Dallas-based artists VET and Karla Ceballos, Zumba will be offered Thursday evenings. Art classes and games will be held Saturday mornings.

“It has been our long-standing goal to activate Fair Park by providing regular, free, accessible programs that are relevant to the wants and needs of our neighboring communities,” said Ashley Langworthy, director of Western Region of Biederman Redevelopment Ventures. “This year, we are furthering these goals by expanding our partnerships to showcase the talent and culture that exists right here in South Dallas.”

Fair Park will also host other free recurring events such as group walks with GirlTrek and the Juanita J. Craft Civil Rights House and Museum, bird watching with the Trinity River Audubon Center, bike rodeos with Bike Friendly South Dallas and outdoor movie nights.

On May 20, Texas Turtle Day will return give attendees an up-close encounter with the numerous species of turtles in the Leonhardt Lagoon as Texas Turtles performs their annual catch-and-release conservation and monitoring study.

“First and foremost, Fair Park is a park,” said Alyssa Arnold, Chief Impact Officer of Fair Park. “This next programming series seeks to further emphasize and amplify this message as we prepare for the future Community Park Complex.”
