By transforming the square into a pedestrian-friendly recreation space, city leaders hope to turn it into a destination that welcomes the public and invigorates Garland’s historic downtown.

The square also will continue to serve as the city’s gathering place for annual holiday events and celebrations.

Officials estimate the design phase to be about 12 months, after which they will move into the procurement and construction stages of the project.
