The Dallas Architecture Forum will present the Panel Parks and Trails in Dallas: 25 Years of Progress.

Dallas has made amazing progress in the development of parks and trails over the last 25 years. During this time-period area residents and visitors have witnessed a substantial increase in the amount of park space throughout the city; the opening of the transformative Klyde Warren deck park; new parks in the urban core through Parks for Downtown Dallas, and the expansion of the trails system in the city.

Though more progress in creating additional and accessible green space throughout the city is wanted, needed and has been championed by many, including Mayor Johnson and City Hall leadership, much has been accomplished over the last 25 years. This panel will examine these major developments in parks and trails in Dallas over this time period.

The panel will be moderated by Willis Winters, FAIA, past Director of the City of Dallas Park and Recreation Department. Panelists will be Amy Meadows, President of Parks for Downtown Dallas; Tara Green, Principal of OJB and former President of Klyde Warren Park; Bud Melton, regional champion for bicycle and walking trails; and Paul Dyer, who was the long-time Director of the Dallas Park and Recreation Department.
