Fair park holds the Cotton Bowl, Fairgrounds and Dallas Theatre among just a few of its attractions. During the fiar season it is a must see when in Dallas. Even in the non fair season it will keep you and the family busy.

Don't want to go to Fair Park either during the fair or any other time. Everything is too expensive and just not worth the money.

If you've never been, definitely check it out. However everything inside is expensive. Food is extremely overpriced, tons of people inside, parking isn't that bad if you can find lots offering a deal. I just wish they would use this area more than the occasional...More

It's got to be good here with a Toms shoe sale! 8 pairs for $135! Good location for events and local companies to set up. The parking lot was easy to find and park.

So much beauty and history. If you're only going here during the State Fair, you are missing out. Every inch of the park is gorgeous.
