How will Dallas afford this? How many plans have they they offered for the Trinity? Will this one have solar powered water taxis and a road on a levee of all places?

Most likely it will be funded by private donors who will keep tight control of the design snd operation of the park. Instead of proper nature reserve it will be more of a landscaped manicured green area for the public.

Is the land proposed for the park under the control of the US Army Corps of Engineers? If so, the dedication of the land for park use could be similar to that of 26,000 acres now used as parkland in west Houston, which is leased from the Corps. That has been a real asset to west Houston ... and I imagine a similar project in DFW would be a wonderful asset for the area and also not as expensive as outright purchase of so much acreage.
