M A N AG E M E N T PA R T N E R S H I P S Dallas Park and Recreation has established public-private partnerships with nonprofits, agencies, corporations and businesses for the management of city-owned venues and facilities. These ongoing connections enable the department to provide specialized programs and activities to a uniquely diverse urban population: Cedar Ridge Preserve is a 600-acre natural habitat with nine miles of trails winding through rustic hills minutes from downtown. Audubon Dallas along with the City of Dallas manage Cedar Ridge Preserve. For the eighth consecutive year, the Dallas Zoo broke its all-time attendance record, welcoming more than 1.2 million visitors. Also, the Zoo opened the $14 million, 2.1-acre Simmons Hippo Outpost. The new 3.5-acre ‘A Tasteful Place’ garden at the Dallas Arboretum served as a year-round learning location offering programs in cooking, horticulture, nutrition, and daily tastings. Starplex Pavilion underwent an $8 million renovation plan that enhanced seating, VIP lounge, entrances and other areas of the outdoor music venue. Texas Discovery Gardens featured native plants and plant species from worldwide regions that are adapted to the challenging climate and soils of North Texas. The Gardens were the first public garden in Texas to be certified 100% organic. MoneyGram Soccer Park was one of four tournament venues to host the Dr. Pepper Dallas Cup XXXVIII. The Dallas Cup brought teams from 100 countries to participate in Dallas’ premier invitation-only youth tournament. The Trinity River Audubon Center launched ‘Dining on the Prairie’ where participants experienced an extraordinary chef-prepared dinner along the Great Trinity Forest while supporting the center’s conservation programs.
