Celestial Park in Addison Texas
The park has steps leading up to a sundial.
Once at the sundial, if you stand on the current month-engraved circular stone, a shadow will be cast onto the appropriate time-engraved stone. That is what I was told…
We went on an overcast, cold, and drizzly day so we didn’t get to test the sundial. However, we will be back!
Why the name Celestial?
There are many steps around the park. These steps are engraved with celestial quotations and poetry.
We found one quote by Hellen Keller,
“That the sky is brighter than the earth means little unless the earth itself is appreciated and enjoyed. Its beauty loved gives the right to aspire to the radiance of the sunrise and sunset.”
Discovering this Hellen Keller quote was exciting because we had brought “The Life of Hellen Keller” book for a family read.
This park is small, and parking is limited. Like seriously limited!
This is where I parked, one of only 5 spaces next to the park.
Parking Take Two:
If you want to park “off-site” and walk a little way to the park, then locate 5350 Belt Line. This is a finance building behind Del Frisco.
From here, you will need to locate the jogging path in the direction of Celestial Park.
You’ll pass a gazebo, pond and bridge before entering the amazing Celestial Park.
Walking or Picnic:
There are a few nice walking paths, benches, tables and chairs.
Yes, the park is dog-friendly and even has pet waste dispensers.
