Phase 1 will feature the creation of an 18-acre Community Park, designed by Studio-MLA in conjunction with surrounding neighborhoods, and will also include the development of a 1.3-acre MLK Gateway Park.
The 18-acre Community Park is the first step to putting the “Park” back in Fair Park. This will also serve as a transformative point in our history.
“This masterplan update acknowledges the vital importance of Fair Park to the surrounding community and our great city. It significantly expands upon previous planning initiatives to suggest an exciting future for the park that is both sustainable and achievable. One of the exciting certainties of this planning effort is that the team is in place to deliver on its comprehensive goals.”
Willis Winters, Director Emeritus, Dallas Park and Recreation Department

“I think the park is a good start to giving back to the community. It will create some beautification, provide uplift, and give residents somewhere nice to go in their own backyard.”
