Reverchon Park is a public park in the Oak Lawn area of Dallas, Texas. It was named for Julien Reverchon.

The park lies along Turtle Creek, a tributary of the Trinity River. Its main entrance is at Maple Avenue and Turtle Creek Boulevard.


Reverchon Park is 46 acres (0.19 km2) in area, and offers around 40 leisure and recreational program for citizens, including health screenings, tutoring, athletic leagues, yoga, volleyball, and after-school programs. The park also is home to baseball fields, basketball courts, and tennis courts. [1]

A playground in the park, accessible to children of all abilities, was designed by the Texas Scottish Rite Hospital, the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, and the City of Dallas.[1]

A section of the Katy Trail, a recreational rail trail, runs adjacent to the park. It connects to parks of the Trinity River Project.

Southern Methodist University baseball existed briefly at the ballpark from 1977-1980, before the baseball program disbanded.[2]
