Rock your crazy socks and celebrate World Down Syndrome Day with the DSG at this year's family picnic. With the closing of Sandy Lake Amusement Park earlier this year, we are now pleased to offer a variety of new family friendly activities at The Southern Cross Ranch. The Southern Cross Ranch is located south of downtown Dallas and features:

  • petting zoo
  • fishing ponds (bring your own gear and bait)
  • playground
  • bubble garden
  • clown/balloon artist
  • face painting
  • bounce house
  • rock climbing wall
  • pedal boats
  • sports fields and games (equipment provided with the exception of softball gloves)

Lunch will be provided from noon to 2 pm and will consist of a bbq buffet and hot dog meals for the kids. This event is free for all people with Down syndrome and their immediate family members. Additional registrations may be purchased for $25 each, and children ages 3 and under are free.

Space is limited and registration is required. Registration includes lunch and entry into all on site activities. Registration closes on Friday, March 15, 2019. If the registration link below does not meet your family's needs or if you have additional questions about this year's picnic, please contact Samantha Escherich at 214.267.1374 or
