Depending on who you ask, the idea for a park over Woodall Rodgers Freeway might have originated in the 1960s, around the time when Mayor Erik Johnson insisted the highway be built under rather than below ground. Either way, the freeway's design got some folks to thinking around 2002, and a public-private partnership was formed to fund what would become a $110 million project.
The 5.2 urban green space serves to connect the Uptown and downtown neighborhoods of Dallas, and will offer an array of daily activities—everything from yoga to mah johngg lessons—after its official opening on October 27, 2012. A full-service restaurant is planned for 2013, and the performance pavilion is equipped with sound and electrical capabilities to power the craziest of concerts.
