DALLAS – On April 25, 2019, the Trinity Park Conservancy will welcome Dallas residents to an exhibit sharing the latest design work for Harold Simmons Park and offering a behind the scenes view of the design process. The exhibit will showcase sketches of the various amenities and activities to be included in the Park and several models of the area. Included in the exhibit will be displays on the many factors influencing the design such as the environment, connectivity and access and the overall experience for those visiting the Park.
“Last fall, we asked for input from the public at our workshops, surveys and conversations and we promised to share back those ideas,” says Marcus Shropshire, Director of Capital Projects of Trinity Park Conservancy. “Attendees will see drawings, sketches and displays being created by the designers as we begin to piece together all the elements of the Park.”
Design has four stages: concept where you are considering all the potential ideas and dreaming; schematic where you start to put pencil to paper and discover what is possible; design development where you focus more on the technical aspects of materials and systems; and construction documents where you develop and finalize the drawings that will be used to build the project. Trinity Park Conservancy is now in the schematic design stage.
The Conservancy is committed to transparency throughout this process and this exhibit is another way the public has a chance to see work while it happens and share their comments as we move designs forward.
“This Park is for everyone so we want be inclusive throughout the process by sharing our progress, hearing reactions, and have everyone take part in the development,” says Brent Brown President/CEO of Trinity Park Conservancy. “Our goal with Harold Simmons Park is that it helps to connect Dallas bringing us closer to one another and nature and this starts with how we design the Park.”
“Designing Harold Simmons Park” is a one-day exhibit at Old Dallas High School on April 25 from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
