Elmwood Parkway is a 16-acre greenbelt dedicated as a City of Dallas linear park in 1945. Elmwood is unique in Dallas because its planners allowed construction to curve with and develop along a beautiful greenbelt. 



Elmwood Parkway runs along the banks of Cedar Creek and Elmwood Branch and is a focal point of the neighborhood.
The 16-acre linear park, established in 1945, is lined with mature trees and is home to a variety of birds and wildlife. It features play equipment, picnic tables, a basketball court, wildflower areas and a trail that's popular for jogging and dog walking.

Elmwood Parkway Trail, a wide meandering concrete path funded under the 2006 municipal bond program, opened in 2012. Since 2016, an extension connects it to the 263-acre Kiest Park to the south and future plans call for a northward extension to Gannon Park near Wynnewood.
