How can Dallas transform Fair Park, a magnificent but underperforming amenity, into a year-round destination and economic engine for its South Dallas environs? The city is now faced with several options for its redevelopment, and must choose the best path forward. In conjunction with the Dallas Festival of Ideas, this program, moderated by Dallas Morning News architecture critic Mark Lamster, brings together thought leaders, decision makers, and community members to address this critical issue for the city.
Panel Season Sponsors are John Eagle Dealerships, HOSSLEY Lighting Associates, Purdy McGuire, Inc., Cindy + Armond Schwartz, Talley Associates and WDG Architects.
