Groundwork Dallas Hosts Grand Opening of Hines Park




Hines Park, located at 9601 Harry Hines Boulevard, in West Dallas, was once a neglected and litter-filled green space. Groundwork Dallas adopted the park four years ago and has constructed a loop trail, rock garden, wildlife viewing platform, benches and fencing to make this a beautiful sanctuary in an industrial part of the city.

Groundwork Dallas will host the grand opening from 9 to 11 a.m., June 7, with light refreshments, music, binoculars for birdwatching and a guided walk on the newly constructed trails. There will also be a BioBlitz, which focuses on finding and identifying as many species as possible in a specific area over a short period of time, at 10 a.m.

Groundwork Dallas hosts one Saturday Volunteer Day per month at Hines Park, where volunteers clear litter and debris, maintain trails or install fencing that prevents litter from the highway finding its way to the lake and Hines Park environs. Volunteers have also planted about 75 native shrubs and flowers to foster biodiversity and a healthy ecosystem. Project supporters include the city of Dallas and many charitable foundations around the DFW area, including the Boone Family Foundation.

Park at Xenco Labs, 9701 Harry Hines Blvd. For more information, visit GroundworkDallas.org.
