Plaza of the Americas Swaps Ice Rink for Indoor Park

View Comments (


    Downtown Dallas can expect to get more green in its scenery.

    The Plaza of the Americas will close its public ice-skating rink and replace it with a lush indoor park.

    Developers say the new space will make the plaza more attractive to renters, even though the area is already a popular lunch venue.

    The makeover will reportedly include adding olive trees, tall bamboo, dining areas and retail pavilions.

    The project is expected to be finished by Spring 2013.
