Dallas Architecture Forum presents Dallas Parks and Public Spaces
Dallas parks have materially increased in importance in the last 20 years under solid public and private leadership. This comes during one of the most exciting periods in modern urban history in which parks have gone from being non-existent in downtown and in the far reaches of the city edge to becoming major economic engines for the urban fabric throughout. This renaissance has been brought about by forward-thinking municipal officials, public-private partnerships such as the Dallas Park Foundation and Woodall Rogers Park Foundation-Klyde Warren (one of the city’s best non-prescription mood elevators) and other savvy, resourceful, and entrepreneurial groups.
Where will Dallas parks go in the next 20 years? This important topic will be discussed at Dallas Architecture Forum's Panel Discussion moderated by Lois Finkelman, former Board Chair of both the Dallas Park Board and the NPRA (National Park and Recreation Association) as well as City Council Member. She will be joined by panelists involved with public park leadership in Dallas who are working to shape the future of the city.
