Reported January 2023
In Dallas, there are 388 parks totaling over 27,000 acres, plus the approximate 6,000-acre Great Trinity Forest. However, these green spaces are not evenly distributed, and only about 60 percent of Dallas residents have access to a park within ½ mile walk of their home. Additionally, the City of Dallas is second only to Phoenix, Arizona relative to the size of the urban heat island. In FY 22-23, 7 actions from this sector, with 39 milestones will be initiated. Implementation of these new milestones will involve collaboration with the following City departments:
Park & Recreation Department
Department of Convention and Event Services
Dallas Water Utilities
Note: Actions marked as ongoing span multiple fiscal years, meaning efforts will be carried out continuously and therefore will not be marked complete until the end of this fiscal year.
