You're invited to set aside the fast-paced culture of today and step into the quiet and beauty of God’s creation at Cathedral Park for a few minutes or a few hours. Here you will encounter trails for wandering as well as benches for sitting and meditating, all among the sounds of calling birds and bubbling fountains. Many people come to Cathedral Park to enjoy nature and for quiet meditation and relaxation.

Individuals and small groups are welcome at Cathedral Park. A self-guided Meditation Walk is available and will take approximately 45 minutes. Various groups occasionally sponsor quiet days, brief retreats, creative workshops and other events on the property. Most are open to all. Click here to view a calendar of scheduled events. Contact Marjorie George, at marjorie.george@dwtx.org, for more information about Cathedral Park events.

Cathedral Park hours are generally sunrise to sunset. Special events sometimes take place after hours.
Parking is available using the lower lot, inside the gates Monday through Friday from 9:00am until 5:00 p.m., except on holidays. After hours street parking is available on Torcido Drive, and the park may be accessed by the rock steps to the left of the entry gate. If the gates are open after hours when you arrive, do not leave your car inside the gates, or you may get locked in.
A restroom is located in the Pavilion area, next to the entrance gate at the bottom of the boardwalk.
If you bring your dog, please clean up after it and prevent it from damaging plants or other places on the grounds.
