When it comes time to complain about taxes and how governmental entities only waste the resources given to them, think about parks, and your favorite place to spend some extended time getting away from the hustle and bustle, alone, with your dogs, or with those you love, or those you’ll come to love. Public parks with urban spaces are a respite and remind us its better to be in touch with some semblance of nature versus winning the rat race. If you win the rat race you’re still just a rat… with a crown or a medal, which is nice, but still a rat.
What other amazing public spaces are out there? What about Dallas? Not usually a place you think of for kick ass parks.
Klyde Warren. Now there’s a Texas sounding name.
This unique public park creates a 5.2-acre urban green space bridging across a three-block-long section of the Woodall Rogers Freeway in downtown Dallas. It connects the city’s flourishing Arts District with other neighborhoods, bringing together cultural events and recreational activities around a sweeping pedestrian promenade.
The park offers a mix of active and passive spaces, including a restaurant and performance stage, a children’s park and playground, jogging trails, reading room, games area, dog park, fountain plaza and botanical garden. Although it is open to the public (from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m.) at no charge, it is not a city park but is operated by the private Woodall Rogers Park Foundation.
Don’t think B-town in the Ho ain’t representing. Katy A Park is the gem of the rich (but philanthropical) lady-named parks. Just check it.
