Dallas Morning News says: Explore Downtown Arlington on a self-guided public art tour

(Dallas Morning News) Arlington is launching a downtown-centric program encouraging residents to experience the city center’s outdoor spaces.

In an email introducing the program, Downtown Arlington Management Corporation President and CEO Maggie Campbell said “Downtown Outdoors” creates opportunities to discover and engage with the downtown landscape, all without setting foot inside a building.

Self-guided downtown walking and biking routes, ranging from one to two miles, will allow residents to remain socially distant while exploring the heart of the city.

One route allows residents to “connect the dots” of downtown’s eight “Stars of Texas” public art installations. The other two routes take residents on tours of north and south downtown murals.

Campbell said other events and programming are coming soon.
