Wick Allison Hearts The Park

by Joanna Singleton

D Magazine publisher Wick Allison has some kind words for The Park in the December issue. He calls the project the "heart of the city." Thank you Wick for the support! For the full story, visit An excerpt:

The tin man famously had no heart. Neither did Dallas, if you think about it. Before October’s opening of the AT&T Performing Arts Center, where would you have put it?

I know where to put it now. Woodall Rodgers Park, when it opens in 2011, will reorient our 150-year-old conception of downtown. I don’t mean only spatially, although the Arts District has already tugged development northward. I mean spiritually.
