When you say “large bags,” does that include diaper bags?

For Dallas Wings games, the answer is yes. Only small diaper bags can be brought into the arena, and they will be searched at the bag inspection area. Also, a small clutch bag (no larger than 5.5”x8.5”)  or clear tote bag (12”x6”x12”) can be brought into the arena. These, too, may be searched. Click here for the full Dallas Wings Bag/Purse Policy.

For all other events, the answer is no. Purses, fanny packs, diaper bags or any similar bags may be brought into the arena, but may be searched at the bag inspection area. Larger items, such as duffle bags, backpacks, suitcases and carry-on luggage are not permitted.

Are strollers permitted?

Strollers are permitted for younger children. As a safety measure, however, they are not allowed in the general arena seating. We ask that you check the stroller at Guest Services located by the main entrance.

Are there changing stations in the bathrooms?

Three family restrooms are located on the lower concourse by sections 105, 108, and 113. Diaper-changing stations are available in these restrooms.

Do I need to buy a ticket for my toddler?

For Dallas Wings games, tickets are required for children ages three and older. A ticket must be purchased for children who will be sitting in their own seat.

For other events, it depends. For most events, a ticket will be required for everyone. However, policies may vary for some special events. Please contact the Box Office at 817-272-9595 for information pertaining to specific events.

Where do I go if I’ve lost my child?

Separated children and parents should contact the nearest College Park Center employee or go to Guest Services located by the main entrance. We recommend you sign up for our free KID Tags program. Just fill out a form at the Guest Services desk before your event, and we’ll give your child a numbered wristband. If you become separated, the wristband will be matched with the information on the form to quickly reunite you and your child/children.

What do I do if I've lost or left a pesonal item at an event?

Items found during or after an event will be turned in to Guest Services and stored in the College Park Center management office. Lost and found items will be logged and kept for 14 calendar days, after which they will be disposed of or donated to charity.

What are your accommodations for disabled guests?

Our facility meets all ADA requirements, and ADA seats are located at the top of the lower seating bowl (sections 101, 103, 104, 107, 111, 113, and 114) and on the floor (when floor seating is present). Wheelchair accommodations are available within each price category and wheelchair access is provided for specially designated restrooms, ticket windows, and concession stands.

All ADA patrons who have purchased tickets on the floor for concerts should see one of our Event Staff Members for directions to the floor. If you or a guest is in need of wheelchair assistance, please contact an usher or staff member, and we will be happy to escort you to your seat.

What happens in the event of a major/minor emergency within the Center?

If such circumstances arise, please remain calm and follow any instructions as they are announced. College Park Center Event Staff will be available to assist with any evacuation procedures.

For minor emergencies, guests should seek the first aid station, located to the east of the main entrance, across from section 105. If you require medical assistance, please contact the nearest usher or College Park Center employee.
