Five Mile Creek Greenbelt Master Plan Wins GDPC Award

Catherine Saunders

We’re excited to share that TBG has won a Greater Dallas Planning Council (GDPC) award for our work with the City of Dallas, For Oak Cliff and The Trust for Public Land!

The Five Mile Creek Greenbelt Master Plan won the award in the Unbuilt Dream/Study Award category and will be celebrated at an awards ceremony tonight in Dallas.

About the Project:
The Five Mile Creek Greenbelt Master Plan is a groundbreaking departure from existing Dallas trail development. It addresses the needs of a historically underserved community with 23.5 miles of trails, four new parks, programming opportunities to support economic development, equity, improved health and wellness of citizens, and access to a living lab that supports outdoor educational priorities.

Informed by the community through engagement and design, the Five Mile Creek Greenbelt Master Plan is the result of an innovative public-private partnership between the City of Dallas, The Trust for Public Land, and TBG Partners with the support of private donors and citizens of Southern Dallas. Developing the Five Mile Creek Master Plan is the first step in providing other communities with a roadmap of how inclusive urban design can be transformative to the social, economic, and environmental wellbeing of the people and places they serve.
