Cedar Hill State Park
Another open space surprisingly close to Downtown Dallas is this state park protecting a tract of old farmland on rocky limestone slopes, parcels of prairie, and the east shore of the 7,500-acre Joe Pool Lake. You can get acquainted with this land’s past at the Penn Farm Agricultural History Center, touring reconstructed and original farm buildings from the 19th and early 20th centuries.
Space was transformed to lift spirits in the Great Depression when Dallas hosted the Texas Centennial Exposition in 1936. Architects George Dahl and Paul Cret turned Fair Park into a magnificent exhibition of Art Deco design. Plenty of the attractions on this list can be found right here, and the park holds more than 1,200 events a year, from concerts to sporting events.
