This green space will serve the fast-growing Dallas Farmers Market area and developing East Quarter District in Downtown. The site is bounded by Harwood Street, Jackson Street, Pearl Street and Young Street.
The approximately 3.8-acre site was identified as a priority park in the 2013 Downtown Parks Master Plan Update. Since 2014, Parks for Downtown Dallas its private sector partners have acquired land within and on the cusp of the Harwood Historic District to create Harwood Park. Thanks to a generous donation from The Decherd Foundation and Maureen and Robert Decherd, the entire park site is now under PfDD’s purview. East Quarter and Todd Interests donated $1 million toward park construction.
The park design is underway, led by Ten Eyck Landscape Architects out of Austin, Texas. Construction is estimated to begin in summer 2021.
