Fair Park

Fair Park is the site of the 1936 World's Fair, built in celebration of the Texas Centennial. Boasting 227 acres of buildings, sculpture, and gardens portraying the state and its history, Fair Park is the only remaining pre-1950 world's fair site in the U.S. The site is open year-round as a park, and the museums and venues are open daily as well. "Fair Park" is also used to label the neighborhood surrounding the park itself.
Fair Park can be reached by: Cab, DART Light Rail - Green Line (board train with sign reading "N Carrollton") to Fair Park Station
