Top 10 Picnic Parks in DFW

 If you are like me then you are looking for parks to take the kids. I am always looking for parks that are north of the metroplex that my kids would love to explore.  I have asked my friend Jane Sohn Bearden a Dallas mom blogger what are her top 5 parks in North Texas. You will need to go to her page at for her top 5 list.


I will share will you my top 5 parks in DFW and I hope that you will get a chance and explore them as well. 

1. Cottonwood Creek Park.

 This is a park in Irving and has been one of my kids favorites. I really like that the playground area has many areas that the children can explore. This is one of the few parks in the metrroplex that offer handicap access to the playground, including the swings. This is a nice park for walking the trails as well.

2. Bachman Lake Park

 If you kids are into planes this is a great park to watch them come into the Dallas Love Field Airport. This park has great picnic spot around the lake and the kids like feeding the ducks here. What i like about this park is the waling trail that goes around the park, its a great place to take bikes to go for a fun ride after your picnic. 

3. Klyde Warren Park

 You should have already known that this would male the list. This is a park that is in Downtown Dallas. This park has so many attractions that it truly is hard to list them all. They have food trucks, restaurants, reading area and playground. This is the short list and you would need to click the link for more information of events happening everyday. This is a fun park that you can literally spend all day here. 

4. Prather Park.

 Now this is a hidden gem in Dallas. This park is nestled in Highland Park with mature tress surrounding the park. Not only is it gorgeous, its perfect for picnics, family pictures and just relaxing under the tress. The kids just like the small intimate playground and the sweet little walking path as well. Take the time to walk the grounds after your picnic. We would usually grab donuts and a giant blanket and just chill and relax. You will like this park and this will be your hidden gem too. Shh

5. Founders' Plaza

 This is the parks of all parks. This one is located in the North entrance of the Dallas Ft. Worth Airport. This park is really cool. There are interactive modules that the kids can learn about the DFW airport and how it all began here in Dallas/FT. Worth. The grounds is really big that all you would need is large picnic blanket and some burgers from In & out from the location in Grapevine. That's what we usually do with our family. Keep it fun and simple. I hope you can give this location a try.
