Built over the existing Woodall Rodgers Freeway, this 5.2-acre park serves as an important pedestrian connection between the Central Business District, Uptown and the burgeoning Arts District in downtown Dallas, Texas. Bisected by the existing Olive Street bridge, the park is organized by a sweeping pedestrian promenade that features a continuous canopy of specimen Pond Cypress.
The promenade begins at the southwestern corner of the park, drawing visitors of downtown through the park past a botanical garden, a children’s garden with an interactive water feature, a reading room, and an event lawn. A large public plaza adjacent to Olive Street connects the restaurant terrace, the performance pavilion, the casual take-out pavilion to the street and features an interactive fountain feature.
The pedestrian promenade continues to the east across Olive Street and features a number of passive plaza and garden spaces. The pedestrian promenade continues beyond the plaza and connects to a series of intimate garden courtyards, a dog park with an interactive fountain feature and a signature interactive water feature that anchors the park along Pearl Street.
Groves of Oak trees flank the site, providing a strong architectural rhythm along the street and serving as a buffer from the activity of the adjacent frontage roads.
