Fair Park First is making a “green-vestment” by creating a state-of-the-art community park with interconnected parklets and trails across the campus.
Phase 1 will feature the creation of an 11-acre Community Park, designed by Studio-MLA in conjunction with surrounding neighborhoods, and will also include developing a 1.3-acre MLK Gateway Park.

“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.”

“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.”
