Poll:
Should the Dallas Arboretum use the Blackland Prairie for a parking lot?

DALLAS - Leaders with the Dallas Arboretum say they have asked that mowing plans for Winfrey Point be put to a stop after the public expressed outrage over the approved measure last week, read a statement released this morning.

The leaders said they have reached out to District 9 Park Board members to not proceed with the approved plans to mow down an area at Winfrey Point so that a parking area could be created.

"Over the past couple of weeks, the Arboretum has heard the opinions of its friends and neighbors and recognizes any plans to temporarily park at Winfrey Point have resulted in serious misunderstandings that need to be addressed," read the statement.
