We are excited to announce that we are working on a new Open Space Plan!

The last Dallas County Open Space Plan was completed in 1991, and it is time for an update! 

This new plan will create a vision and prioritize Parks & Open Space projects for the next 10 years. It will assess, demand, natural and cultural resources, recreational opportunities, operations, access, connectivity, and equity across the entire program. The plan will also address each preserve individually, considering its unique assets, resources, challenges, and the needs of their surrounding communities. Public feedback will be gathered through surveys and community meetings and incorporated into the plan. Your parks and preserves are better with your input! 

Thank you to all that participated in our community input opportunities over the last 12 months, which included Preserve Intercept Surveys, a Communitywide Survey, and Public Meetings (held September 2023 and April 2024). Your participation will help to shape the 2024 Dallas County Open Space Plan, which is anticipated to be approved by the Commissioners Court later this year.
