Pacific Plaza, nestled in the heart of the Harwood Street pedestrian corridor, provides a grassy respite — a true urban neighborhood park. The park borders One Dallas Center, the Republic complex and the back of the Majestic Theatre.
Pacific Plaza broke ground in April 2018 and opened to the public in October 2019! This surface parking lot has been fully transformed into a 3.74-acre neighborhood park in the heart of Downtown. Pacific Plaza is the center point of the Harwood Street Pedestrian Corridor running from Klyde Warren Park to Main Street Garden to the Farmers Market.
This park was designed by SWA’s Dallas office and features a pavilion designed by HKS, lawn space and large swings that children and adults alike may enjoy. James W. Aston Park, a small pocket park located at the corner of N. Harwood Street and Pacific Avenue, has been folded into the Pacific Plaza design plans and re-dubbed Aston Grove. One block of Live Oak Street has been closed to create a larger, contiguous park and showcase this mature grove of trees along Pacific Avenue.
