If you love watching airplanes, this little park is for you! Plenty of room to spread a picnic lunch out on a table, and watch the operations of one of the world's busiest airports. I have sat there, eating my breakfast, peacefully watching the airport come to life at sunrise, smelling the kerosene fuel (mmm...delicious to an aviation nut!), and... 更多
When I was a child, growing up in Cleveland, Ohio, my Dad would take us to the airport and we'd park on the north side of Brookpark Rd and watch the airliners arriving and departing for hours. Now, nearly 60, I am reliving that wonderful part of my childhood at the Founder's Plaza in Grapevine. This amazing little park, on... 更多
There is a lot to say about a place where you can spend 15 minutes to several hours. Depending on the time of day and season. It is free and there are also several free binoculars stations that you can also use. There is a dedicated area for the military R &R which shows the aircraft and two fire trucks... 更多
This was a great way to past the time as we waited for a family members flight to arrive . It's really close to the north entrance terminal A of the airport and only took us minutes to enter into the airport . The kids loved running around and listening to the recording of the air traffic controllers ! Next... 更多
As other reviews indicate, the site is free and is a great place to watch aircraft movements at DFW. If you are a diehard aircraft spotter and want good pictures, the best time is in the early afternoon as the heavies from Europe come in as well as the Qantas A380. The key to the best experience literally depends on... 更多
I am kind of disappointed with the plaza because they removed the big map of the airport and some other features. It is still a nice place to come and observe airplanes landing and taking off.
My husband was a Marine pilot in Vietnam and continues to be very interested in anything aviation so he enjoyed this side stop much more than me. However, I did find it interesting.
If you're a keen aviation geek or just like a nice place to rest and relax this is the place to come. Plenty of shade and water available on site. Large grassy areas surround the plaza for kids and families. As a true aviation geek flying from Australia to get a glimpse of DFW this certainly was a great experience... 更多
This has got to be the best place to watch aircraft anywhere in the country! Not only is the plaza situated close to the end of a main runway, but DFW is super busy so the planes never stop taking off and landing. Audio of air traffic control is played throughout the plaza, which adds to the experience. Plus, it's... 更多
This is a nice little rest stop and the north end of DFW airport. It has benches and tables where you can sit and enjoy the view, along with a grassy area if you want to spread a blanket for plane watching or a picnic. The speakers allow you to listen in on the radio traffic from the planes and... 更多
