Harwood Park

  • Dallas, Texas
    3.8 Acres
    Beck – Construction

The future Harwood Park, a unique and complementary addition to the Downtown Dallas park network, unites and transforms two city blocks into a community resource where natural systems, architectural history, and urban life converge.

The master plan responds to the growing residential population within the Farmers’ Market District and the corresponding demand for recreational open space by introducing a new approach to the integration of public and private domains in an urban setting.

A variety of exterior spaces promote relaxation and recreation, while repurposed historic buildings on site are seen not as a detriment to open space but as an opportunity for activation, providing the potential for event, living, sports, and office spaces within the park boundaries.

The ecologically-sensitive master plan integrates salvaged materials, maximizes pervious and vegetated areas, and implements a water-harvesting system on site, allowing urban dwellers to connect with nature and their community all within sight of the stunning downtown skyline.
