The American Institute of Architects announced Klyde Warren Park, a freeway deck park in Dallas designed by OJB Landscape Architecture, as the recipient of the 2018 Collaborative Achievement Award, which recognizes and encourages distinguished achievements of groups who have had a beneficial influence on or advanced the architectural profession.
Built over the recessed Woodall Rodgers Freeway, Klyde Warren Park is an innovative deck park that bridges uptown and downtown Dallas.
Dedicated to connecting the community and enriching lives, the park hosts 1,300 free active programs and events each year. In addition to its fitness and educational programming, the park also hosts free movie screenings, symphony concerts, and opera simulcasts. The park provides a pristine, entertainment-rich green space for people of all ages to enjoy. Major features include a children’s park, dog park, great lawn, performance pavilion, restaurant, reading and game room, and five water features. Planning began in 2004 and was completed in 2012.
