A new series of free programs and activities return to Fair Park from now until June. Through the end of June, each week will have Yoga on Tuesday evenings, Zumba on Thursday evenings, and art classes and games on Saturday mornings. Program partners for the weekly series include Yoga N Da Hood and Dallas-based artists VET and Karla Ceballos. In addition to the weekly programs, Fair Park will also host other free recurring events such as group walks with GirlTrek and the Juanita J. Craft Civil Rights House and Museum, bird watching with the Trinity River Audubon Center, bike rodeos with Bike Friendly South Dallas and outdoor movie nights. On May 20, the return of Texas Turtle Day will give attendees an up-close encounter with the numerous species of turtles in the Leonhardt Lagoon as Texas Turtles performs their annual catch-and-release conservation and monitoring study.
