Mission Statement

Dallas County's Parks & Open Space program focuses on the management of green space in urban areas and encourages communities to connect with nature through 21 preserves spread throughout Dallas County.


From its initial start in 1976, the Dallas County Parks & Open Space program set the foundation where open space was intentionally preserved for the conservation of wildlife and native habitat, while simultaneously created a welcoming environment that invites visitors to enjoy the beauty of Dallas County.

With twenty-one preserves totaling 3,519 acres throughout the county; a variety of experiences await visitors ranging from recreational opportunities to connecting with their community in nature.

Not sure where to get started? Look at our map to find the perfect preserve for you! Whether you want to go on an adventure in Garland, Cedar Hill or somewhere in between, our preserves offer opportunities for hikers, bikers, kayakers, and visitors looking for a reprieve from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

Keep up to date with preserve highlights and announcements by following us on Facebook @DallasCountyParksOpenSpace and Instagram @DallasCountyParksOpenSpace.
