The Park and Recreation Department director said the Pacific Plaza park puts Dallas on the map to rival other major cities.
Willis Winters, Dallas Park and Recreation Department director, has an office cluttered in mementos from ribbon cuttings.
A rubber duck, from the Dallas United Crew Boat House ribbon cutting at White Rock, sits on his desk on top of a coffee mug. A soccer ball, from the MoneyGram Soccer Park ground breaking at Elm Fork, is displayed on a side table. A literal ribbon, from the grand opening of the WellMed Senior Activity Center at Redbird Square, hangs on his wall.
Winters estimated he’s been to one ribbon cutting for every month of his 27-year career in the city’s Park and Recreation Department. The Pacific Plaza park’s opening on Monday was his last.
