Klyde Warren Deck Park has been a major catalyst for the transformation of the Arts District and Uptown areas of Dallas. Join The Dallas Architecture Forum for an enlightening and educational evening as we examine the multi-faceted impact that Klyde Warren Park has had on our city. Tara Green, Past President of Klyde Warren Park, will share insights with audience members about the successes and challenges faced by the Park. Our distinguished Panelists will also discuss the planned expansion of Klyde Warren, and how that expansion may impact Dallas. Attendees will learn about the plans and potential issues involved with the Deck Park being constructed over I-35 adjacent to the Dallas Zoo.

 

Diane Jones Allen, Director of the Landscape Architecture program at UTA CAPPA, and Molly Plummer, North Texas Program Manager for the Trust for Public Land, will inform attendees on how parks in Dallas and other major urban centers can serve as connectors and community gathering spaces between and within sections of cites. The Panelists, led by Moderator Elissa Izmailyan, will look at how Dallas is making progress (and also still faces hurdles) in accomplishing these goals while ensuring accessible and equitable access to these parks by all residents of the city.
