Trinity Project Partners
No one organization alone can manage a project as important and complex as the transformation of the Trinity River.
The Trinity Commons Foundation
is just one of a network of organizations devoted to making the river and its amenities a world-class destination. That network includes:
City of Dallas Trinity River Corridor Project
This group comprises professionals who work for the City of Dallas and are directing their expertise toward this important project.
Some oversee the planning and development of different aspects of the Trinity River project; others manage the environmental or transportation components, among others.
Working alongside this group are representatives from other public entities involved in the project. These include the North Texas Tollway Authority, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the Texas Department of Transportation.
The Trinity Trust
The Trust is a private, non-profit organization that is raising private funds to implement the Balanced Vision Plan for the Trinity River Corridor. It also works alongside the City of Dallas and the Trinity Commons Foundation to build public support and secure public funding for the Trinity River project.
Trinity Strand Trail
This non-profit organization is raising funds to develop a 7.8-mile non-motorized hike and bike trail just northwest of downtown Dallas. Part of the trail will run along the original course of the Trinity River (also known as Old Meanders) within the Dallas Design District. The master plan also calls for this new trail to connect to the Katy Trail and to the Trinity River project and provide access to the Southwestern Medical District, Dallas Market Center and Stemmons Corridor businesses.
This non-profit organization improves access to the Great Trinity Forest by planning, constructing and maintaining nature trails, multi-use recreational trails and trail amenities in the Great Trinity Forest.
With a motto of "Changing Places. Changing Lives." Groundwork Dallas also sponsors and coordinates clean-ups and beautification projects in and around South Dallas neighborhoods, parks, waterways and brownfield areas.
