Fair Park Station
Parry Avenue and Exposition Avenue
(3710 Parry Avenue, Dallas 75226 - Mapsco 46K)
Fair Park contains the largest collection of Art Deco exposition buildings in the world, built for the 1936 Texas Centennial Exposition. Back then, trolleys traveled along Parry in front of the main entrance to the fair. Now, DART Rail cars do the same. In creating their vision for this station, Brad and Diana Goldberg - the artists responsible - have paid respect to the rich history of the area as well as the surrounding neighborhoods.
Fair Park Station is served by DART Rail Green Line trains.

Your guide to the art along the Green Line
Use this guide to plan your tour of Fair Park Station.
Built for the 1936 Texas Centennial Exposition, the grand exhibit halls and esplanade of Fair Park constitute the only intact and unaltered pre-1950s world fair site in the United States. Until 1956, trolleys served the fairgrounds with a stop at the main entrance on Parry Avenue. The Green Line's Fair Park Station is situated right where that original trolley stop was, more than a half-century ago.
Art deco touches at Fair Park Station
Other elements contribute to the seamless effect: fluted limestone columns resonate with the nearby Hall of State, while curvilinear seating echoes the rounded shapes evident throughout Fair Park. At night, artistic lighting elements will reflect the historic use of dramatic lighting at Fair Park, and enhance not only the station but the entrance as a whole.
