For All You Citizens of and Visitors to Dallas
As we drove past the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts this weekend, the missus wondered what, exactly, the area was supposed to look like once the five-acre Woodall Rogers Park was finished. (Utility work started at the end of the month, though groundbreaking's a ways off.) This illustration from the city council's budget workshop docs prepared for Wednesday's briefing should give her, and you, some idea. You'll find this on Page 21 of the the section dealing with Culture, Arts & Recreation, where, among other items of interest, you'll see Fair Park visitors stats for 2007 and '08. A word of warning: Everything but Starplex and the recently renovated Cotton Bowl saw a decline in attendance last year.
