Land 

  • 300 pre-stressed box beams were installed.
  • Five feet of fill and 18 inches of soil were used.
  • The park crosses a 200 foot stretch of freeway.

Planting

  • Planting features 322 trees, 904 shrubs, and 3,292 groundwater/perennials.
  • 52% of planting is native to North Texas.

Water

  • 50% permeability increase.
  • Reservoir can collect 12,000 gallons of grey water for irrigation.
  • Drainage mat between soil and deck infrastructure stores excess water.

Carbon, Energy + Air

  • LED lighting fixtures were used.
  • The restaurant relies on geothermal energy for heating and cooling.

  • LED lighting saves $11,200 per year.*
  • Projected to generate $312.7 million in economic development and $12.7 million in tax revenue. Development spurred by the park will contribute to a projected 8.8% population increase in the two Census Block Groups surrounding the park by 2017, supporting the regional goal of making metropolitan centers attractive and viable places to live.*
