Harwood Park rendering called too much too soon

Public should have a say before amenities chosen, some board members say

The Dallas Park and Recreation Board got its first look Thursday at Harwood Park, one of four new downtown parks in various stages of planning while city officials await the funding to finish planting green space in the city center. And some board members said they wished they'd seen it sooner - much sooner.

The rendering, prepared by Ten Eyck  Landscape Architects and Quimby/McCoy Preservation Architecture, was labeled "refined concept masterplan." 

Park and Recreation Director Wills Winters told the board the Harwood plan is in the early stages and will be fleshed out and presented to the board later this year.
