A Beautiful Purpose: Dallas Water Commons Project Will Transform 17 Acres of Wetlands Into a Public Greenspace in The Cedars

by | Sep 9, 2022
The Dallas Water Commons project, slated to break ground in 2024, will transform an industrial site in Dallas' Cedars neighborhood into something both beautiful and purposeful: a public wetlands park with hike and bike lanes that will cleanse and filter 650 million gallons of run-off stormwater each year. A big bonus: protecting the wetlands habitat and the species that live and breed there.

"This is a game changer for Dallas," says Vickie Meeks, a local artist and member of the project’s advisory board.
