We’ve known the inconveniences of its building. We’ve known the surprise we felt when it was announced that it was being named after a youngster. But now we finally know when it’s going to come alive.
The 5.2-acre Klyde Warren Park will officially celebrate its birth the last weekend of October. October 26-27, to be exact. Organizers plan to have a launch similar to the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge celebration back in March, when guests shivered and smiled to Lyle Lovett, fireworks and family-friendly activities. Let’s just hope the weather will be a little user-friendly in late October for the $110M park’s debut. Former North Texas Super Bowl staffers Kit Sawers and Tony Fay have been brought on board to coordinate the event. So if anybody is a bad-weather veteran, these two have tales to chill a barbecue pit.
Even though the date is set, the breakdown of hoop-la is still under wraps. So no word on if there’s gonna be a big-buck event, concert or lemonade stand. That’s all to come. The brains behind the weekend just want to make sure that you have those days on your calendar locked down.
BTW: The British members of the MySweetCharity elves insist on calling it “Klyde Park.” They say it reminds them of jolly old “Hyde Park.”
