Landscape architecture firm Studio-MLA was selected to design the new community park as part of the Fair Park Master Plan in Dallas, Texas. The project replaces more than a thousand parking spaces and includes an 11 hectare park with free programs for children, adults and seniors. The team was selected by Fair Park First, Spectra and Biederman Redevelopment Ventures. The new park will be the first project to emerge from the master plan update.

Studio-MLA will partner with Dallas landscape architects Studio Outside, architect Allison Grace Williams, FAIA, and Dallas-based architects buildingcommunityWORKSHOP as the core design team. The planned design of the community park will likely include a large lawn, a children’s play area with an interactive water feature, naturalized plantings, memorial gardens, a small pavilion for gatherings and movable tables and chairs.
