DALLAS -- The anticipation is building for Saturday's opening of Klyde Warren Park, over Woodall Rogers.

With 50 events going on all weekend, there's lots of fun in store. It's getting to the park that you might want to put some extra thought into.

Parking is $5 everywhere in the Arts District, but there are lots of road closures.

The Woodall Rogers Service Road is closed at St. Paul on the south side, and Pearl on the north. Harwood is closed off at McKinney on the west and Ross on the east. Olive is also closed at McKinney and at Flora.

If that sounds like a headache, you can take the DART train to the arts district and take a short shuttle bus over. You can also take the trolley, or you can ride your bike, provided it's warm enough.

The biggest event of the weekend is the "Concert for Dallas" Saturday night, featuring The Polyphonic Spree. Sunday night is a screening of "Midnight in Paris," with an appearance by Owen Wilson.
