Family Weekends


Kick off your weekends at Sammons Park with these free outdoor events perfect for the entire family. Enjoy complimentary activities for children like face painting, balloon artists, temporary arm tattoos, a petting zoo and more. Gather the family to play lawn games and a round of mini golf at the Reliant Putting Green. Cool off and splash around the Donor Pool. Our friends from Dallas Animal Services will be onsite with dogs looking for their forever homes. Bring your own picnic or grab lunch at the Center Café to wrap up an ideal family outing!
