This neighborhood park will serve the fast-growing Dallas Farmers Market area and the developing East Quarter District. 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.
Between 2014-2018, Parks for Downtown Dallas acquired 14 land parcels within and on the cusp of the Harwood Historic District to create Harwood Park. Parks for Downtown Dallas has engaged Ten Eyck Landscape Architects to lead the park’s design.
One block of Wood Street will be closed in order for the site to become one contiguous 3.8-acre public space. The roadway will be replaced with a pedestrian promenade and a bioswale. Park features include a kids playground, sport court, dog park, interactive splash pad and a striking gold ring arbor on the corner of Harwood and Jackson Street.
