GREEN PARK

Transforming Asphalt To 10 Acres
Of Green Space

The vision for the Green Park transforms an existing, outdated 1940’s highway and expanding Medical District into a new, iconic ‘living’ center for the greater Campus Landscape that both connects and serves the diverse medical, academic, and residential user groups within the Medical District.

The new park will be a beautiful, rich, and complex landscape environment lifted over Inwood Rd and fronting either side of Harry Hines Blvd, the ‘Green Spine.’ This sculptural land bridge will unify and connect the Medical District. The three million users of the Green Park will enjoy pedestrian pathways and gathering spaces, gardens, vantage points, transit services, food and beverage kiosks and innovative storm water management. The continuous shade coverage provided by the formal and informal tree plantings will provide relief from the urban heat island. Pedestrian trails will meander throughout the park and all lead back to the Green Spine and the Central Campus Plaza.

Its location and design position the Green Park to become a signature destination for the DFW Metroplex, while providing amenities for neighbors, patients and their families, medical students, employees and regional visitors.

POSITIONED CENTRALLY WITHIN THE SWMD, THE CLOVERLEAF EXCHANGE HAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO BECOME AN ICONIC GREEN PARK — THE CENTRAL HUB THAT CONNECTS AND SERVES THE WHOLE OF SOUTHWESTERN MEDICAL DISTRICT AND ITS FAST GROWING ADJACENT AREAS AND EXPANDING MEDICAL DISTRICT.

"I would love to be able to have more meetings in outdoor spaces. [It is] good to get staff or clients outside of the walls to brainstorm a new idea. Immediately a change of pace changes up the mood and flow of a meeting.

“It becomes a selling point that you can walk in a connected way through the district with tree coverage. Walking to meetings across campus could be a bigger part of what we’re doing, and it connects to the idea of health and wellness, which we’re all about.”
