Congressman Marc Veasey Presents $1 Million Federal Community Project Funding Check to Harold Simmons Park

Dallas, Texas (April 23, 2024) – In support of Harold Simmons Park’s future impact on Dallas, Congressman Marc Veasey presented a $1 Million federal Community Project Funding check to the project during a press conference at the Trinity Park Conservancy’s office on Tuesday, April 23rd. State Senator Royce West and State Representative Rafael Anchía were in attendance to express their unified project support. The funds will support the construction of a major park connector, a 130 ft long land bridge, over Beckley Avenue. The land bridge will connect Harold Simmons Park’s West Overlook with the Park’s nature preserve.

The Federal Community Project Funding received congressional bi-partisan support and approval. This significant contribution aims to bolster vital environmental sustainability, connectivity, and economic opportunities for West Dallas communities. The land bridge seamlessly connects community neighborhoods and their residents to established centers of Dallas via existing trails and roadways.

The following statements were given during the Community Project Funding Check presentation:

“The Trinity River has long divided the city of Dallas, but Harold Simmons Park is going to bring Dallas together.”
 – Congressman Marc Veasey, District 33

“We are attacking this particular project by making certain that the necessary resources are put in place philanthropically, and that we have collaboration between the federal, state and local governments.” – State Senator Royce West, District 23

“Harold Simmons Park will be an amenity that all people will enjoy for generations.” – State Representative Rafael Anchía, District 103

“This pivotal moment showcases how different departments of government can work together to advance North Texas communities forward for a greener and more vibrant future.” – Tony Moore, CEO, Trinity Park Conservancy
