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.
The approximately 3.8-acre site was identified as a priority park in the City of Dallas’ 2013 Downtown Parks Master Plan Update. Since 2014, Parks for Downtown Dallas and The Decherd Foundation have acquired land within and on the cusp of the Harwood Historic District to create Harwood Park. The formal design process for Harwood Park will be led by Ten Eyck Landscape Architects with associate architect McCoy Collaborative. The design process for Harwood Park will launch in 2020 and construction will begin in 2021.
