Oval Park

With a sprawling, park-like setting accented by trees and flower gardens, this expansive space features several interesting levels that provide plenty of room for your guests.

The palm-lined boulevard of the McAllen Convention Center’s main entrance opens into a 2.4 acre park, shaded with native trees and pergolas.  This expansive space features an impressive water fountain that leads into a reflective pond.  Located on the east side of the Oval Park there is a multifunctional platform with an acoustical shell, where outdoor concerts are held. The facility hosts several outdoor events and festivals, including a free concerts series, and the Mcallen’s annual festival, Palmfest.
