Elaine D. and Charles A. Sammons Park
Elaine D. and Charles A. Sammons Park embraces and unifies all venues of the AT&T Performing Arts Center. Weaving together the Winspear Opera House, Wyly Theatre, Strauss Square and City Performance Hall, the ten-acre park stretches from Woodall Rodgers Freeway to Ross Avenue, and is the first public park in the Dallas Arts District. To the west, Sammons Park links the Center to the Meyerson, and to the east it connects with Booker T. Washington High School.
A signature feature of Sammons Park is the beautiful reflecting pool in front of the Winspear Opera House. Numerous small gardens scattered throughout the Park enhance its appeal with mature trees, perennials, bulbs and grasses lending bursts of color year-round. Sprawling lawns provide serene settings for picnics, informal and formal performances and other outdoor activities.
Woven together by a Sammons Park, the Center’s individual state of-the-art venues create a dynamic all-inclusive cultural destination for the performance of music, dance, opera, theatre—and more. Home to many of Dallas’ finest performing arts organizations, the Center hosts more than 500 performances and events annually. Beyond the presentation of music, theatre, jazz, ballet, lectures and concerts, the Center will also serve as an educational center for visitors of all ages, from primary grades through college and beyond. The focus of the educational component is to build wide-ranging appreciation for the arts to inspire future generations of artists and audiences.
The AT&T Performing Arts Center includes the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House, the Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre, Annette Strauss Artist Square and City Performance Hall, all set within the ten acre Elaine D. and Charles A. Sammons Park, the largest public park in downtown Dallas.
