What We’re Doing
Partnering with the Dallas community to create 23 miles of new trails, protect 124 acres of public land, create three new parks, and complete a comprehensive revitalization of the surrounding natural areas.

This new urban greenbelt will connect thousands to the outdoors.
Five Mile Creek Urban Greenbelt Overview
The Trust for Public Land, TBG Partners, and City of Dallas Park and Recreation Department have worked with Southern Dallas residents to create a community-oriented vision plan for a network of parks and trails called the Five Mile Creek Urban Greenbelt. This greenbelt will protect some of the last untouched heritage landscapes in Dallas, provide public access to new trails and green space, improve the environmental health of the Trinity River, create connections between Southern Dallas neighborhoods, and provide outdoor education opportunities. By planning and designing for both neighborhood and community parks and conserving valuable environmental assets, the Five Mile Creek Urban Greenbelt addresses key outdoor and recreation needs of Southern Dallas.
