Dallas Park and Recreation recognized for restoration initiatives
Dallas Park and Recreation Department received the Preservation Achievement Award by Preservation Dallas for its restoration on the Hamilton Park Pavilion and the Lee Park Roque Courts.
“Dallas Park and Recreation has received more than a dozen Preservation Achievement Awards since the ceremony began in 1999,” Donovan Westover, Preservation Dallas Events and Development Coordinator stated. Dallas Park and Recreation recognized at the 18th annual Preservation Achievement Awards on Wednesday, May 31.
Dallas Park and Recreation teamed up with architect GSR Andrade and contractor Going Forward Inc. to rebuild the Hamilton Park Pavilion which officially reopened on Dec. 16, 2016.
The Lee Park Roque Courts restored the courts with help from Armstrong-Berger, Landscape Architects and Henneberger Construction. The park also reintroduced roque, a form of croquet, to enhance the 1940s feel.
