Come join us for a morning at the Park! This fun place has loads of new things to learn about an old piece of land. We will see the monuments, esplanades, water features, and museums while learning the surprising and sometimes shocking history of this famous piece of real estate. Visualize the Texas State Fair happening here in just a few weeks and learn how it came to be located in Dallas. Perhaps visit a museum or two of your choice.

We will have lunch on our own – perhaps at the Old Stone Mill – a unique attraction in Fair Park for decades!

Next we will visit the George W. Bush Presidential Center, one of only 13 Presidential Libraries in The United States officially established by the NARA. Before 1955 the documents and presidential papers were considered property of the presidents when they left office. Some were then taken, lost or destroyed. The Presidential Libraries Act of 1955 focused on saving documents and personal papers for placement in museums. We will see personal belongings, photos, documents and a mock-up of the Oval Office as it appeared while President George W. Bush was in office. We may also like to stroll in the 15 acre Native Texas Park surrounding the Library. Admission $9

We will do a drive-by to see the latest developments in the 5.2 acre, 3 block long Klyde Warren Park built over the Woodall Rogers Freeway.
