Parks & Trails
The Dallas Park System is one of the largest municipal park systems in the nation with 397 parks totaling over 20,118 acres of developed and undeveloped parkland
The award-winning Dallas Trail Plan has over 158 miles of the most beautiful and diverse urban hike and bike trails in the country.
The Park and Recreation Department's commitment to environmental self-stewardship means managing park lands and resources so they can be used and enjoyed now and in the future. The department has established a Natural and Wildflower Program in an effort to beautify properties within the park system and reduce the environmental impact of mowing large areas of park land on a regular basis.
Downtown parks offer residents and visitors a "breath of fresh air" and vibrant community spaces in the heart of the city.
Dallas' four dog parks offer amenities tailored to your four legged family members and provide a safe and secure place for them to run free and socialize with their canine companions.
