Trinity Park Conservancy is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) organization, founded in 2004 under the name of The Trinity Trust Foundation, to support and implement the recreational, economic development, and environmental stewardship components within the City of Dallas’ Trinity River Corridor Project. As an organization dedicated to strong urban design for Dallas’ largest public green space and to stewardship of its river environment, we have raised more than $115 million in private philanthropy to support projects such as Margaret Hunt Hill and Margaret McDermott Bridge.


Championing a Trinity River that forever deepens our connection to one another and nature.


The Trinity Park Conservancy champions the transformation of the Trinity River to become the heart of Dallas. With the community, we will design public spaces that unite us, enrich people’s lives through access to nature, create economic development opportunities, and inspire protection for the river ecosystems in this shared natural treasure.


Fulfilling the promise of the Trinity River as the natural gathering place for Dallas.
