The Trinity Park Conservancy is committed to projects that deepen our connection to one another and nature.

Building on our history of past projects and our current work with Harold Simmons Park, the Conservancy will champion projects that create public spaces that unite us, enrich people’s lives through access to nature, create economic development opportunities, and inspire protection for the river’s ecosystems.


Explore the Trinity River and you’ll soon discover a vibrant natural habitat, right here in the heart of Dallas.

A habitat that encompasses the largest urban hardwood forest in the nation as well as a rich river habitat with thriving wildlife and diverse landscapes from prairie to wetlands. With the Trinity River Corridor covering 20 miles or approximately 10,000 acres along the Trinity River, we have vast opportunities to maintain and even enhance the wild nature of the landscape as well as incorporate additional access for people to enjoy the river area.

The Conservancy is dedicated to developing projects that meet the right criteria to meet this balance. Stay tuned to this space as we announce new projects along the Trinity River such as trail extensions, park enhancements, and more. By giving us your email, we will send you the latest announcements and activities, as well as news on how your can participate.
