Texas’ most historic showplace is thrilled to open its backyard to Dallas dwellers for a weekend full of fun-filled activities starting April 28. Offering a scenic Trinity River view away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Dallas, the new Longhorn Park is a taste of what’s to come at the property. With plans to open a two-and- a-half-acre outdoor Container Park in the future, Longhorn Ballroom owner Jay LaFrance is giving patrons a reason to visit the historic space and spend time in nature this spring. Every Saturday and Sunday starting April 28, the Park will offer horseback riding, local live music, and a leash less dog park for your furry friends, in addition to beer specials from Texas Ale Project and Texas-style grub from Pecan Lodge Catering and Tillman’s Roadhouse. Longhorn Ballroom is located at 216 Corinth St., Dallas, TX 75207.

Starting at 9 a.m., Longhorn Park will offer 20 minute horseback rides from the Longhorn backyard across the Trinity River levy, offering a horseback view of the river and downtown Dallas skyline for $25. Its new leash less dog park will serve as a place for furry friends to run wild as patrons enjoy brews and BBQ outdoors. Longhorn Park programming will continue as weather permits through fall. With each Pecan Lodge Catering and Tillman’s Road House plate or sandwich purchase, patrons can enjoy a free seasonal Texas Ale Project beer. Texas Ale Project will also offer $5 beer specials for anyone in the Park during opening weekend. Texas-style food offerings include Pecan Lodge Catering brisket, sausage, ribs, and pulled pork plates or BBQ sandwiches with Tillman’s Road House sides.

“The Longhorn Park is a great addition to creative events we’ve hosted at the Longhorn since its renovation last September,” said LaFrance. “For grand opening weekend, we’ve hand-picked a few of our favorite local partners to help us offer Dallas locals a chance to enjoy our riverfront backyard.”

Grand opening weekend at the Park will also feature local live music from 3 to 6 p.m. from two Fort Worth-based rock bands, Meach Pango and Cut Throat Finches, from local record label Hand Drawn Records.
