Guide to Fair Park

Things to Do in Fair Park

View Map

Fair Park primarily refers to a major Dallas landmark that is home to nine museums, and the largest Ferris wheel in the U.S. Many buildings that were built for a 1936 Texas Centennial Exposition remain beautiful examples of Art Deco style. The 277-acre park space was declared a National landmark.

The tranquil Leonhardt Lagoon, the Music Hall, the Margo Jones Theater, and the African American Museum of Dallas are all located here. The Museum of Science includes a planetarium and IMAX theater. The Cotton Bowl Stadium, once home to the Dallas Cowboys, hosts concerts, soccer tournaments and other events throughout the year.
