Sprawling through the Turtle Creek neighborhood in Uptown, the park has been a natural oasis for Dallasites since 1903! Before it became an official park for visitors, Texas Rangers would meet there and camp -- it's been known for its abundance of turtles since way back when! Throughout the years, its remained a place for community. During World War II it was used for blood drives, and in the 70s hippies would gather and soak up the sun. After years of use, the Turtle Creek Conservancy was formed to renovate and upkeep the park! Today, it's stunning as ever and a great place for a walk, to relax, and is even a popular spot for proposals!
