​Scope and Content

Collection consists of planimetric/topographic maps pertaining to the Dallas Park and Recreation Department (PKR) locations for existing and planned parks.   

The maps were likely used for landscaping and design planning, and one is related to zoning.  

Most of the maps have a PKR reference number, and when present, the numbers are noted in the container list.  Additionally, the majority of the maps have no dates listed; the date range is likely from the 1940s to 1960s.


The maps are organized first by media size and type and second by chronological order.


Permission to publish, reproduce, distribute, or use by any and all other current or future developed methods or procedures must be obtained in writing from the Dallas Municipal Archives. All rights are reserved and retained regardless of current or future development or laws that may apply to fair use standards.
