Stone Park Better Block a Success!

On April 1, 2017, Kings Highway Conservation District neighbors teamed up with Team Better Block, a consulting firm born in Oak Cliff out of the original Better Block project back in 2010, to conduct a rapid planning effort with neighborhood volunteers and showcase how W. W. Stone Park could be improved using best practice place-making tools called Stone Park Better Block.

Kings Highway Stories

I chose to live in Kings Highway because of it’s historical structures, proximity to Bishop Arts District, and the beautiful, old growth trees.  In 2006 I purchased a 1,300 sq ft craftsman bungalow near Kings Highway and Polk St.  I wanted a place I could make my own after living in old East Dallas for 6 years, and growing up in Plano and East Dallas.

After moving in, I decided to do as much of the work on the house as I could, starting with cleaning the attic and adding much needed insulation.  I quickly learned how to do my own electrical work, and slowly but surely make it into the home we love.  My partner, Lillian and our new daughter Ruth love the house and our neighbors.  We enjoy dining locally, riding our bicycles, and taking part in the local events and politics of the day.
