Details regarding the Southern Dallas Park updates as the Dallas City Council approves the development of the Oak Cliff Deck Park according to a Dallas Morning News article from November 11 which reports,
A nonprofit foundation will oversee the design and construction of a park being built over Interstate 35E in Oak Cliff.
“The Dallas City Council unanimously approved a development agreement on Wednesday with the Southern Gateway Public Green Foundation for the $172 million project.
The 5-acre southern Dallas park will be built in two phases. The first covers construction for about half of the park — from Ewing Avenue to Lancaster Avenue — and is projected to open in late 2023. It’s not clear when the second half, which continues toward Marsalis Avenue, would open.
The deck park would span I-35E near the Dallas Zoo and is modeled after Klyde Warren Park in Uptown. The park will feature lawns, a playground, water features and an area for food trucks.”
Photos of the initial construction of the deck park were provided in an Advocate Oak Cliff article from October 28. In the said photos, it can be seen that the deck park stretches in I35E and foundations for the deck park have already been placed to accommodate different attractions and amenities that will be placed in the deck park.
The construction of the park is expected to be finished in 2023 and the park will open later on after the park amenities finishes.
