Dallas Library accepting proposals to design a kid-friendly pathway

Dallas Public Library announced it will be accepting design proposals for a new kid-friendly and educational pathway will lead kids from the sidewalk, across the Plaza and through the front doors of the Central Library in downtown Dallas.

The Dallas Public Library is seeking design proposals for the walking path to welcome children who may be visiting the library on a field trip, a program or event or with their parents to the Vital Statistics Office.

“We are looking for designs that will incorporate literacy and play, such as popular children’s rhymes, planets of the solar system and basic math,” said Youth Services Administrator Melissa Dease.

The project will be funded with a Play Everywhere grant from Kaboom! which encourages the transformation of everyday spaces into opportunities for kids to play. Submission deadline is May 25 and the path is expected to be completed by Aug. 10.
