Re: Trinity River Park

The lack of any progress in the last five years really blows my mind. I showed up at SMU a ten years ago and I feel like between 09-14 we had measurable changes (MHH Bridge, Continental bridge, overlook, Skyline Trail) but other than killing the highway there hasn’t been hardly anything in the 15-1...

Re: Trinity River Park

Re: Trinity River Park

This is sad but not surprising. I agree with what Phillip Kingston said. There is such a thing as dreaming too big. We keep wasting money when we could simply make this a great park. If we even paved the length of the trail, planted trees, and added parking it would improve it tremendously. Half of ...

Re: The Canyon In Oak Cliff

Any news on if this is going to happen. I saw the plans but I still see a giant for sale sign.
