A new food truck park is opening in a corner of downtown Dallas that could really use it. Called the Browder Street Plaza, it's at 222 Browder St., in the open concourse between the Dallas Power and Light building and the AT&T headquarters, between Commerce and Jackson streets.

The park is a collaboration between Hamilton Properties Corporation, which developed the DP&L building, and Dallas Food Truck Pros, creator of such food trucks as Crazy Fish Gourmet Sushi, Mr. Snowie Gourmet Snow Cones, and Very Individual Pizza.

"At Hamilton Properties, we are always looking to contribute to that dynamic city-center idea of urbanism," says spokesperson Ashley Farha in a release. "Browder Street Plaza is a natural fit for us. It creates walkability, that social and physical connectivity, in a very engaging way."

An online schedule shows three trucks per day beginning at 11 am, including Abe's Flavor Flave, the Butcher's Son, Ruthie's, and Mad Grill.

Browder Street Plaza is across the street from the back of The Joule and a block from the Commerce Street entrance to Neiman Marcus. You can access it via 1500 Jackson Street to the south, or 1500 Commerce Street to the north. This new development will use not only the vacant lot on Browder Street but also the vacant space on the first floor of the Dallas Power & Lights building.

It intends to serve as a lunch destination, with a wide range of food truck options, along with outdoor games, music, and special events. Onsite will be life size Jenga, art projects, and picnic tables; event programming is on the horizon, with the potential of movie nights and live music. It's also dog-friendly.
