Kid-Friendly Activities in DFW for Summer

Summer is fast approaching in the DFW area. And, summer means two things in Texas: hot weather and no school for the kids. While we can’t do anything about the hot weather, we can plan some fun activities with the kids during their time off. There is never a shortage of kid friendly things to do in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. However, there are some events in the area that are more suitable to do with your children. Let’s take a look at some of the top activities to do with your kids this summer around DFW:

Klyde Warren Park

This new park bridges the space between uptown and downtown. Klyde Park has all kinds of activities for your children. From a children’s park and dog park to ping pong and croquet, your kids will have a great time!
