Fireworks capped off opening day of Klyde Warren park Saturday night.

Thousands of people got their first look at the park that connects uptown to the downtown arts district.

Mayor Mike Rawlings celebrated at the opening ceremony, as did Klyde Warren, the boy the park is named for.

The 5.2 acre, 110-million dollar, park was built over Woodall Rodgers Freeway.

Those who checked it out were amazed.

"We actually seen a part of the city you've never seen before because we had a road going through it," one park-goer told Fox 4 News.

Another said, "It makes it a destination which is something that has been lacking for quite some time down here."

More than a dozen events and activities are planned for Sunday, starting at 9AM.

Actor and Dallas native Owen Wilson hosts an outdoor showing of the movie "Midnight in Paris" at 7:45PM .
