Dallas Parks Plan

Dallas, Texas

As part of a comprehensive facilities survey and master plan by Carter Burgess for the City of Dallas Park and Recreation Department, Architexas prepared condition assessments and improvement recommendations for 35 of Dallas’ most historic parks. Architexas created a data base to document the research and condition assessment for each park and worked with the city archivist to catalogue historic records and drawings. The city-wide “Renaissance Plan” identified over $2 billion in maintenance and improvement work needed. The city began implementing the Plan in 2004 with bond funds and Architexas was commissioned to provide full architectural services for the restoration of three historic parks. Restoration work included repair of park structures, furniture and landscape, and making the parks accessible and safe.
