Dallas’ two-day grand opening celebration of Klyde Warren Park, the 5.2-acre deck park overlooking Woodall Rodgers Freeway, will be sponsored in part by Chase Bank.
The financial institution has signed a title sponsorship for the free event on Oct. 27-28, in addition to $3 million contributed to the park’s construction. Chase has a promenade within the park named after the bank.
Highlights of the two-day Grand Opening festival, which will spread across the Park’s 5.2 acres and adjacent Arts District, include a dedication ceremony, an outdoor performance by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, a Saturday evening concert on the Great Lawn’s Muse Family Performance Pavilion and sneak peeks at the Park’s on-going programming. The opening will coincide with the final weekend of Art in October, the annual celebration of the Arts District.
Film actor and Dallas native Owen Wilson serves as the event’s Honorary Chair.
