The Parks at Arlington is a shopping mall that opened in 1988 at 3811 South Cooper Street (FM 157) and Interstate 20 in South Arlington, Texas between Fort Worth and Dallas. It went through a renovation in 1996. It is one of the leading shopping destinations in the Metroplex. The Dallas Morning News calls it "An Overcrowded entertainment destination". It is the third-largest mall in Tarrant County behind its upscale competitor North East Mall.[2] Major anchor stores include Dick's Sporting Goods, Dillard's, J. C. Penney, Macy's, Nordstrom Rack, and Sears.


Opened in 1988, the mall was developed by Homart Development Company and Herring Marathon. Original anchor stores were J. C. Penney, Dillard's, Mervyns, and Sears.[3] Foley's (bought out by Macy's in 2006) joined in 1994 as a fifth anchor.[4]

It expanded again in 2002 with a new wing featuring Galyan's (now Dick's Sporting Goods) and The Great Indoors.[5][6] The Great Indoors closed in 2003.[7]

When Mervyns closed in 2006, it was replaced with several new tenants, including Barnes & Noble, The Cheesecake Factory, and Forever 21.[8]
