Winfrey Point Will Not Be Mowed Monday
 
Dallas

Quote:

The city had planned to mow down wildflowers and prairie grass at the White Rock Lake Park to accommodate overflow parking from the arboretum, but protesters have fought the move the entire way and even filed a temporary restraining order against the city last week.
Quote:

The temporary restraining order was dissolved Friday, allowing the city to go forward with plans to mow the field. Protesters marched in front of the arboretum over the weekend and were expected to continue their efforts this week.
Quote:

The arboretum said they've used the field for parking before and that up until a few years ago the field was routinely mowed.

"It was only because of budget cutbacks that the parks department, that they stopped mowing it," said Brian Shivers, chairman of the Dallas Arboretum.

Neighbors living near the park said they want to protect the field and that it's ironic the city wants to destroy nature so that people can park to see man-made nature at the arboretum.
