Multiple locations, sunstonefit.com Readers’ Pick: Sunstone Yoga Best Park Klyde Warren Park Straddling a freeway, this downtown oasis has become a grassy magnet for workers needing a break, high-rise dwellers craving a look at ground-level life, museum-goers, ATTPAC vis-itors, lovers, mommies with baby strollers and power walkers. With artsy lighting, well-kept landscaping and a steady stream of pedestrians and bench-sitters, the Klyde is a fave for selfie-taking tourists and Uptown dog owners taking designer mutts out for a whiz (remember those poop bags). A knitting group meets one day a week in the park, a book club on another (weather permitting). You’ll find picnickers, Frisbee tossers and, because of its location, a few of the overnight “campers” who didn’t make it to the homeless shelter in time. Rain or shine, for the rich or poor, the Klyde awaits, a blanket of calm atop a busy thoroughfare. 2012 Woodall Rodgers Freeway, klydewarrenpark.org | CULTURE/PEOPLE Readers’ Pick: Academy Sports and Outdoors Various locations, academy.com &#0d;

sPARKITMARKET&#0e;COM Best Athlete Jordan Spieth Was it ever going to be anyone else? Champion golfer and native Texan Jordan Alexander Spi-eth won the 2015 Masters, the 2015 U.S. Open and came within a shot of making a playoff at the 2015 British Open. Had he won at St. An-drews, Spieth would’ve become the first golfer since Ben Hogan (in 1953) to win those three tournaments in a single season. Instead, he set-tled for being the first golfer since Tiger Woods (in 2002) to win the Masters and U.S. Open in the same year. Spieth bought a multi-million-dollar house in Preston Hollow and estimates put his net worth at around $16 million from winnings and endorsements. As one sports-writer put it, Spieth’s basically Dallas’ fifth ma-jor sports franchise at this point. He’s 22.

If you’re not a dog lover, this might sound miser-able, but when you watch your furry friend join the pack of free-roaming bar hounds, you’ll smile with pride. There just aren’t enough places where your pup can socialize while you imbibe. Dog Day Afternoon is the perfect spot. The bar itself tends to attract people with big dogs — there’s one frequent guest that is the size of a horse — but the dogs are mostly friendly, and even a shy dog will feel at home under a picnic table by your feet. 1807 Gould St.,214-428-1555, leeharveys.com | SPORTS/RECREACTION NOMINATED BY THE DALLAS OBSERVER FOR BEST INTRAMURAL LEAGUE Best Free Workout Klyde Warren Park’s Free Yoga If you’re looking to get in shape on the cheap, your workout schedule is available at klydewarrenpark.org.
