New parks in southern Dallas? “It’s about time!” residents say
Elsewhere in the Dallas metro, creeks are the backbone of well-planned, well-maintained trail networks, peaceful and welcoming amenities connecting neighborhoods. But not in Oak Cliff, a neighborhood with far too little in the way of parks and open space.
Hidden in Dallas, some surprising green gems
Better known for big hair and big hats, the city of Dallas has a park system more on the modest side. But if you know where to look, you’ll find some one-of-a-kind parks in this sprawling Texas metro.
This "dream team" relies on each other to explore the wilderness
Melanie Knecht from Dallas-Forth Worth and Trevor from Fort Collins, CO are adventure buddies. Melanie was born with spina bifida and doesn’t walk and Trevor has glaucoma and lost his sight five years ago. They’ve teamed up to explore the wilderness: when they’re out on trail, Trevor carries Melanie on his back, and Melanie guides Trevor with her voice, directing him where to step and alerting him to upcoming obstacles.
