Fair Park Esplanade

Based on the Fair Park Comprehensive Development Plan, the Fair Park Esplanade and the Parry Avenue Gate was restored and enhanced by the addition of a water feature which occupies a portion of the historic 700-foot long reflecting basin. The fountain includes the tallest water jets in the state and is designed to be choreographed to music, a sound system and lights. In the spirit of the original 1936 show, this new water feature delights visitors day and night with changing programs.

The restoration included a large pylon, landscaping and light features surrounding the fountain. With the recent addition of the DART Light Rail Station in 2009, a restored historic entrance gate greets visitors to Fair Park. The gate structures were restored and the wall reconstructed to match its original 1936 appearance.
