The city's lively centerpiece, with a cafe, lush lawn, tree groves, and a fountain, which converts into an ice skating rink in winter.

Things To Do

Dilworth Park is a beautifully appointed park with an interactive fountain, lush lawn and tree grove seating areas, which features a café. The fountain, open in the warmer months, transforms into an ice skating rink each winter. Both are favorite activities for kids and adults alike. Spring through fall the park is bustling with people enjoying the many activities happening all week long. Festivals, live musical performances, outdoor movie screenings, and happy hour specials bring an audience to the park at all hours of the day and night. Plus, you can stay connected with free XFINITY WiFi at Dilworth Park. And all of this activity is taking place above a major transit hub.
