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.

Trinity Park Conservancy
For more than a decade, the Trinity Park Conservancy (formerly The Trinity Trust Foundation) has advocated Dallas’ Trinity River Corridor Project and the Balanced Vision Plan by bringing awareness to the public, raising more than $115 million dollars in private funds and championing strong urban design for the city’s largest public green space. Projects have included the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, Margaret McDermott Bridge and Ronald Kirk Bridge; the Dallas CityDesign Studio; and trails throughout the Great Trinity Forest.

In October 2016, the Conservancy received a $50 million gift from Annette Simmons for the Trinity River Park as part of Dallas’ Balanced Vision Plan. With our change of name in January 2017, we have broadened our mission to more actively participate in recreational, ecological and community development projects including engaging, designing, building, operating and maintaining the proposed Harold Simmons Park.

Our purpose is to connect people and nature along the reimagined Trinity River with recreational spaces that inspire and unite our community.

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.

Groundwork Dallas
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.
