Located in the East Quarter neighborhood, Harwood Park is a top destination for families, residents, and visitors of the nearby Dallas Farmers Market.
Harwood Park is the final of the four Priority Parks that Downtown Dallas Parks Conservancy built in partnership with the Dallas Park & Recreation Department. The park broke ground in late 2021, and opened to the public on September 23, 2023.
The park site was a collection of surface parking lots and vacant buildings in a historic district. Today, it is nearly 4-acres packed with park features including a mammoth playground, interactive water feature, a sport court for pickleball and basketball, 2 dog parks, and a striking gold ring pavilion at the Harwood and Jackson Street entrance.
One block of roadway was closed and replaced with a pedestrian promenade and rain garden that runs through the center of the park.
