With spring in deep bloom and summer just around the corner, now’s a wonderful time to escape to Hotel Crescent Court and take advantage of the many outdoor activities the Dallas metro area serves up within its cosmopolitan urban mosaic.

Your home base at our luxury hotel in Uptown Dallas sets you up perfectly for enjoying hiking, biking, jogging, and other outdoor pursuits amid the sweet-scented Texas sunshine. Here are just a few ideas for your next Hotel Crescent Court getaway!

The Katy Trail

This stellar 3.5-mile rails-to-trails route traces the bygone Southern Branch line of the Union Pacific Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad, nicknamed the “K.T.”—hence “Katy.” A City of Dallas parkway, the Katy Trail is a beloved destination for cycling, jogging, and walking among locals and out-of-towners alike. You’ll find yourself less than a mile away from the Katy Trail’s South Trailhead when calling a Hotel Crescent Court guestroom or suite your Dallas home away from home.

Art installations enliven the Katy Trail corridor. This year’s public art includes Nic Nicosia’s the twins and Jeff Gibbons and Gregory Ruppe’s Boreal Forest, Grunting Grasses.

The Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Gardens

This 43-acre beautyscape lies along the southeastern shore of White Rock Lake, just a hop, skip, and a jump from our luxury Uptown Dallas hotel. Nearly 20 distinct gardens, from the Nancy Rutchik Red Maple Rill to the Pecan Grove and Crape Myrtle Allee, compose this 1984-established arboretum and gardenscape, which is a reliably tranquil and mesmerizing place to stroll.

From special garden installations and bloom celebrations to concerts, cooking classes, summer camps, and more, the Dallas Arboretum & Botanical Gardens also hosts a regular roster of events. You can take a look at the full calendar right here.

Klyde Warren Park

One of Dallas’s defining central greenspaces and community gathering areas, 5.2-acre Klyde Warren Park lies less than a half-mile from Hotel Crescent Court. It’s a lovely place to walk, relax, and picnic, and there’s also a daily platter of free programming on offer—from yoga classes to concerts and lectures. And don’t miss the park’s Food Truck Lane when it comes to satisfying your appetite.
