Commitment to Community


The Conservancy champions the transformation of the Trinity River to become the heart of Dallas. With the community, we are designing public green 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.  The Conservancy’s community engagement process is vital to the vision for Harold Simmons Park. For generations the Trinity River has divided Dallas; the Park will become an inclusive and welcoming gathering space for all Dallas residents and visitors. This initial Park project can unlock citywide recreational, social, cultural, and economic impacts. Inclusive dialogue with neighboring communities and all Dallas residents is essential to building a shared vision for a public green space that brings us together.

“I want the Park to connect people – there is so much diversity in our city, but few natural environments that facilitate meaningful connections between different groups.” – Community Workshop Attendee
