Weaving together the venues of the AT&T Performing Arts Center, Elaine D. and Charles A. Sammons Park serves as an extension of our venues prior to performances, a performance venue for local artists, and a gathering place for our diverse community. Michelle Desvigne of Paris designed Sammons Park in collaboration with JJR of Chicago.
Sammons Park provides a lively destination for families, event patrons, concert-goers, students and individuals from across North Texas. In addition to the outdoor verandah seating in front of the Winspear Opera House, sprawling lawns provide an ideal setting for picnics, performances and other outdoor activities.
A signature feature of Sammons Park is the large Donor Reflecting Pool in front of the Winspear Opera House. Children of all ages enjoy splashing across the black granite, which honors Center donors, including those who participate in naming opportunities at the Center.
