OhK! Preston Hollow Billionaire Kelcy Warren Buys Rights to Name Woodall Rogers Park for His Son, Klyde

By Candy Evans / February 21, 2012 / 11 Comments

Why is everyone so surprised over energy billionaire Kelcy Warren buying the naming rights to Woodall Rogers Park? It’s not like I haven’t been telling you this is a man who REALLY likes dirt. On February 18, Cheryl Hall at the Dallas Morning News had a dandy exclusive story about Warren’s (rumored) $10 million purchase of the naming rights to Woodall Rogers Park, our venerable 5.2 acre greenbelt park over the freeway that will frost the Arts District in green.

Cool story, but it’s not as if I haven’t been telling you for years that Kelcy Warren is a cool, self-made man who likes him some real estate and also, apparently, music.

It is designed to be soundproof and that closet is the size of most apartments.
