Use this guide to plan your tour of Hampton Station.
Hampton Station is located in a mature West Oak Cliff neighborhood, long known for its strong sense of community and family ties. More specifically, the station adjoins Elmwood Creek where generations of neighborhood families have hiked, played, and observed the passage of seasons.
Station art and design revolve around Elmwood Creek because of its constancy in the life of the neighborhood. They also honor the community's home-grown "famous son" - the late musician Stevie Ray Vaughan - who often sang about values the neighborhood holds dear.
Station landscaping further strengthens the feeling of neighborhood and creek life by creating a park-like setting. The creek concept, as suggested by the landscaping design, begins at the station's perimeter wall and continues across the parking lot and station platform.
Family and Community
In the song "Tick Tock", the late Stevie Ray Vaughan, a neighborhood resident and one of the nation's leading blues singers, sang about the importance of family and community. The song lyrics are inscribed in concrete pavers as if flowing in a stream.
Platform columns illustrate the flora and fauna of Elmwood Creek. The bottom section of each column represents water with fish and other forms of creek life. The middle section depicts tree leaves and land animals such as frogs, grasshoppers, insects, and snakes. The top section depicts birds soaring in the sky.

The sculpture incorporates stylized animals and vegetation native to the Elmwood Creek area, harmonizing with the arches of the station's canopies and suggesting a "circle of life" in society as well as nature.
