As much as $200 million in private funds could be spent on a park between the Trinity River levees.
After the Trinity toll road died, the Annette Simmons donated $10 million for a 200-acre park along the Trinity River, between the Continental Avenue pedestrian bridge and Interstate 30.
If the Trinity Park Conservancy can raise another $150 million, it will unlock another $40 million from Annette Simmons.
The question is, what should the park be?
The Trinity Park Conservancy is inviting the public to a series of workshops to help decide.
The first one is Saturday, Sept. 15 at the West Dallas Multipurpose Center. It will have a “come-and-go interactive format” from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Monday, Sept. 17 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Cedar Crest Golf Course
