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.
