Family friendly places and activities

Looking for something the entire family can enjoy in Dallas's Trinity River Corridor? Consider these:

  Continental Avenue Bridge and West Dallas Gateway
Now on the National Register of Historic Places, the 1930s Continental Avenue Bridge and the new West Dallas Gateway are the site of events, play areas, a pedestrian and bike crossing, and stunning views of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge and Dallas skyline. The West Dallas Gateway also provides an easy access point for the Trinity Skyline Trail.

  Texas Horse Park
The Texas Horse Park opens up a world of equestrian adventure and a glimpse into the early days of Texas ranching and farming along the Trinity River. From trail rides, riding lessons, kid's parties to therapeutic sports riding, saddle up at the Horse Park.

  Trinity Forest Trails
Trinity Forest Trails represent an eight-mile loop that will be expanded even further in the years ahead. There are several trail heads (including one at the Trinity River Audubon Center) which are great starting points.

  Trinity River Audubon Center
The Trinity River Audubon Center offers something for the whole family, from an interactive exhibit hall that invites hands-on exploration to nearly five miles of easy hiking trails designed to promote a love for the outdoors.

  Trinity Overlook Park
Get a great look at three centuries of Trinity River bridges. Marvel at the Dallas skyline. Look over panels showing you what is planned for where in the Trinity River Corridor project. The Overlook also provides an easy access point for the Trinity Skyline Trail. See our map
