Downtown Dallas gets $30M boost to develop 4 new city parks

Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings announced Thursday that the City of Dallas parks department would get a $30 million boost to develop four priority parks in downtown Dallas: Pacific Plaza, Carpenter Plaza, West End Plaza and Harwood Park.

If developed, these parks could add incremental value to neighboring real estate and development surrounding the green spaces. In the past three years, Dallas has focused on developing new green spaces in the city’s urban core, creating Klyde Warren Park, Main Street Garden Park and Belo Garden Park.

The City of Dallas received $30 million to help bring more parks to downtown Dallas, including four priority parks.
