Thursday evening we Arts District volunteers got a great opportunity to attend a special presentation about "The Park." That is the five soon-to-be-fabulous acres decking Woodall Rodgers Freeway between Uptown and the Arts District. Come this fall we can expect to be taking our ease on a bench in a grove of oak trees, having a bite to eat at the pavilion restaurant, pitching a ball for Fido in the dog park, strolling through the botanical garden, bringing the kids to their very own play area, watching a performance on the great lawn.... Well, I could go on and on, but the best thing to do is to click on over to their very lovely and informative website. This is the sort of thing that makes you want to live in Dallas.
An additional perk of the evening was a chance to take in the marvelous view from The Park office's fourth floor balcony overlooking the nascent park (see the first of the trees!) with the Arts District and downtown beyond.
