In honor of PARK(ing) Day Dallas 2011, buildingcommunityWORKSHOP decided to study the Dallas park system. What our research uncovered surprised us, so we set out to learn if Dallas citizens would feel the same way. This website presents the information our research unearthed as well as preliminary results of our survey on Dallas parks.

The buildingcommunityWORKSHOP is a Dallas based nonprofit community design center seeking to improve the livability and viability of communities through the practice of thoughtful design and making. We enrich the lives of citizens by bringing design thinking to areas of our city where resources are most scarce. To do so, the bcWORKSHOP recognizes that it must first understand the social, economic, and environmental issues facing a community before beginning work.
