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 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.
The design for Harwood Park will be led by Ten Eyck Landscape Architects, based in Austin, Texas. The formal design process for Harwood Park will launch in 2020 and construction will begin in 2021.
