As an entry to one of the primary “entry parks” into the Great Trinity River Forest Preserve, the facilities and structures of Moore Park are thematic in the sense that they set a visual identity for the Trinity River Forest area as it interfaces with surrounding communities. The park has a visual character that is in part conveyed by the architecture of the main pavilion. This pavilion structure creates the form of a portal, which defines the point of entry and all events within the park design establish a sequence that moves from door to “interior”. The urban design elements of this park define: portal, pathways, gathering spaces, activity spaces, interfaces and buffers. Such elements establish the Trinity Forest as a “form giving” feature of the urban fabric of Dallas that gives legibility and identity to all parts of the city it touches.
