Stevie Ray Vaughan Park Officially Opens In Cockrell Hill, Texas

On Saturday April 22, the small city of Cockrell Hill — tucked into Dallas nearby Vaughan’s Oak Cliff neighborhood — unveiled Stevie Ray Vaughan Park to coincide with Earth Day.

The new park includes a stage, a grassy knoll and parking spots for food trucks. Near the manicured lawn, there’s a realistic painted mural depicting photos of the Vaughan brothers through the years.

One of the photos is of Jimmie’s first band, the Swinging Pendulums. A young Stevie is on the stage. Written on the stage below the band are the words, “Cockrell Hill Jubilee.”
