Kiest Park receives Lone Star Legacy Award

Kiest Park

Kiest Park is among five Texas parks honored with designation as a Lone Star Legacy Park by the Texas Recreation and Parks Society (TRAPS) in a ceremony at the association’s annual institute in Irving.

“This is a great recognition for Dallas and our park system,” said Oscar Carmona, Park and Recreation Assistant Director. “Kiest is one of Dallas’ oldest and busiest parks and remains a favorite of residents. The variety of recreation and leisure options is a major contributor to Oak Cliff’s vibrant communities.”

Four other parks received the honor in the sixth year of the statewide program. They are Parque Zaragoza, Austin; Tandy Hills Natural Area, Fort Worth; Kempner Park, Memorial Park, Houston and Cypress Bend Park, New Braunfels. 

A Lone Star Legacy Park is classified as a park that holds special prominence in the local community and the state of Texas. To qualify for consideration, the park must have endured the test of time and become iconic to those who have visited, played and rested on its grounds. Last year, Reverchon Park was designated as a Legacy Park.
