My name is Jon Bailey, I'm an Associate Designer and Researcher with HKS Architects located in Dallas. We're currently working on a project behind our Dallas headquarters called Pacific Plaza Park Pavilion and that is the project that we will be presenting to you today. So running adjacent to the Pacific Plaza Park is a street called Harwood. This street actually connects Pacific Plaza to several other parks within downtown, starting to the north with Klyde Warren Park, which is actually one of our newest deck parks that was built over the Interstate. And so Harwood connects all the way from Klyde Warren Park all the way south to the Farmers Market.

It also runs into Main Street Garden and so along Harwood, you actually have a string of parks that you'll be able to walk to. There's actually future plans by several local developers to add at least a lane of Harwood for biking and walking to make it more pedestrian friendly, so that you can make your way all the way on a Saturday or Sunday with your family, from Klyde Warren Park all the way to the Farmers District down south.
