Online survey for Heritage Park closing soon – Welcome to the City of Fort Worth
Published on May 12, 2021
An online poll seeking information about the future of Heritage Park, Paddock Park and related downtown street design projects will soon be closing.
The Heritage Park Plaza, 300 N. Main St., designed by the well-known landscape architect Lawrence Halprin, has been closed to the public since 2004 for safety reasons.
Three virtual public meetings were held to discuss design concepts, park improvements, and receive community feedback. Residents and interested parties can still make contributions via an online survey May 15::
“The more public we have, the better the end product will be,” said Valerie Washington, deputy city manager. “This project will serve the entire city, our guests and visitors.”
After applying for qualification, Downtown Fort Worth Initiatives Inc. signed a design services contract with MIG, a national design, planning and architecture firm. MIG has offices in San Antonio and most recently completed the Confluence: The Trinity River master plan. The MIG team includes the local partners Huitt-Zollars and Emraes. Bennett Benner Partners will continue to lead the way in the restoration of the Heritage Plaza.
