Dallas - Klyde Warren/ Woodall Rodgers
2006 - 2006 Call for Projects
The Klyde Warren Park (Woodall Rodgers Park) is a 5.2 acre park, plaza, and urban green space built over the recessed Woodall Rodgers Freeway in downtown Dallas. The park is a major attraction in the heart of the city and reconnects the urban fabric of two of Dallas' most urban neighborhoods, Uptown and the Arts District. The park opened in 2012 covers three blocks and includes gardens, plazas, foundations, lawn, performance stage, playground, dog park, and space for food trucks.
Funding through the 2005-2006 Sustainable Development Call for Projects provided pedestrian amenities for the park including sidewalks, decorative paving, crosswalks, signal trees, and benches. The goal of project funding was to encourage additional mixed-use development in the neighboring districts and to increase ridership on area transit.
Klyde Warren has become a major hub for various types of events and activities. The park’s location enables local residents to easily access the area, as well as various amenities located nearby. Surrounding transit and light rail stations enable the park to act as a hub for transportation as well.
The project cost of $562,500 was funded through public-private partnerships.
- 226,512 sq. ft. of public open space
- 150 residential units
- 5,700 sq. ft. of retail/restaurant space
