Dallas’ latest Nature District will turn an undeveloped flood plain into a vibrant riverfront park

Access to green space is imperative to a city resident’s survival; one only needs to venture to some corner of Central Park any day of the week to see the city’s inhabitants recharging amidst the grass, trees and ponds. That’s why Dallas’ latest project, turning the currently underdeveloped Trinity River Corridor into a full-fledged Nature District, is so important and monumental for the surrounding area’s inhabitants. dallas-trinity-river-park-6 The park, designed by Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates, is set to be 10 times larger than Central Park, clocking in at over 10,000 acres of green space. The Trinity River cuts through the major metropolis though it’s currently isolated from the city; this plan aims to change that by transforming the surrounding flood plain into a vibrant, family-friendly and activity-filled nature park. Playgrounds, walking trails, bike paths and other public spaces are all set to open by October 2017, though a golf course, horse park and Audubon Center are already accessible. Plus, the build out will help protect the river from flooding— an extra environmental bonus. [mymodernmet.com] dallas-trinity-river-park-5
