Parks for Downtown Dallas


Parks for Downtown Dallas is a nonprofit foundation whose goal is to establish four new, major downtown parks. Thanks to the passing of the 2017 bond package, which Dallas voters overwhelmingly approved, we’re proud to create Pacific Plaza, Carpenter Park, Harwood Park and West End Square in the heart of Downtown Dallas. Join us in our mission to change the face of downtown and ensure our great city enjoys great parks!
