Reverend Allen R. Griggs, D. D. became a free man on June 19, 1865. He then dedicated his life to educating Black Texans. Today, on Juneteenth, we continue to learn about freedom and equality, as well as how we may contribute to the necessary changes our community needs.
The park was established in 1915 and dedicated to Reverend Griggs in 1924. In 2014, Uptown Dallas Inc redesigned the park and erected the obelisk pictured. We encourage you to visit Griggs Park today to learn more about Rev. Griggs and the history of his incredible contribution to his community. Griggs Park is located at 2209 Clark St.

This Cinco de Mayo we are celebrating all things Mexican-American culture with our newest May mural done by Christopher Babb!
Cinco de Mayo commemorates the anniversary of the Battle of Puebla. On May 5, 1862, in an incredibly unlikely turn of events, Mexican forces defeated the French army at the Battle of Puebla. The victory slowed Napoleon and the French's advances to Mexico City and provided a much-needed morale boost for Mexican forces. Today, it is still celebrated in Puebla, the site of the unlikely victory.
The holiday has become extremely popular in the USA, so we encourage you to spend today learning about the true meaning behind the holiday as well as the incredible Mexican culture - and maybe a margarita or two. We hope you enjoy!

Come on Uptown... get some art before the real heat sets in....)
Looking for someone to clean 1400sqft apartment in uptown. Would love to make it regularly couple times a month.
I wish I could find a place to setup and sell art in Uptown - until I do come downtown and get some art for your walls. ) If anyone knows of a place where I can setup and sell art, let me know. I bring HUGE pieces (up to 6'x7') so I need a pretty large space.
Dallas come check us out!!!! Most elegant Ho**ah lounge for parties and perfect hanging out spot one and only ALI BABA HO**AH LOUNGE 2238 W Walnut Ln, Irving, TX 75038

With All This Crazy Weather Busting Pipes Water leaks Caved Inn Roofs ECT... Donnie Whitley and Gwen Whitley with (G&D Renovations) Can Help... I HIGHLY RECOMMEND‼️
Tomorrow (Sunday) from 10am til 3pm my son and I will have close to 200 of pieces of original art for sale at Main Street Garden Park. Prices start at $10 - and you can buy an original painting, on canvas, as large as 40"x40" for under $150. ALL 100% original, no reproductions. There has not been an art festival in 2020 thanks to Covid, and I miss the interaction with the art lovers (and haters, it's all good).... plus HomeGrown Fest in 2018 was my first ever public event so I have a fondness for Main Street Garden Park. At least come by and take a look. HappyHolidays Uptown... ites? Uptownites. 🤞
What is this noise near Reverchon Park?!! Cars backed up and engine roaring. Have people lost their minds?’
What is the current curfew in Uptown for Thursday, June 4th?
Artwork i recently completed.
UDI - Is there something that we as neighbors can do about 3219 McKinney? This property was purchased in 2017 and demolition started. Demolition stopped well short of completion leaving our community with a partially demolished eyesore for at least 1 if not 2 years. Can UDI and/or neighbors start to apply pressure to the landlord to finish the job? I would assert that the current building state is not an asset to Uptown Dallas.
