This green space will serve the fast-growing Dallas Farmers Market area, the developing East Quarter District, and connect downtown with Deep Ellum. The site is bounded by Harwood Street, Jackson Street, Pearl Street and Young Street.
Harwood Park will be the last of the four Priority Parks to be constructed, and is slated to break ground in late 2021.
Since 2014, Parks for Downtown Dallas and 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 has been acquired and is ready for development.
The 3.8-acre park is being designed by Ten Eyck Landscape Architects out of Austin, TX. Park features include a playscape, sport court, interactive water feature and a striking gold ring arbor on the corner of Harwood and Jackson Street.
