​FORT WORTH - The Kimbell Art Foundation is planning for $8 million in improvements to its Darnell St. parking lot and green spaces located east of the Kimbell Art Museum's main campus.

The new space, once completed, will continue to provide free car and bicycle parking to museum visitors as well as an integrated Bike Share pad, enhanced landscaping, green recreation spaces, and shaded pedestrian walkways.

The 227 parking spaces will be flanked by shaded pathways with a wayfinding system that will provide museum directions.

A one-half-kilometer shaded walking path to the museum will loop around the block.

The Darnell St. property is located on a nearly six-acre block bound by University Drive, Lancaster Ave., Van Cliburn Way and Darnell St. and is the last area in the art museum triangle of the Cultural District to be developed.

Construction on the project will begin in July and is expected to take 18 months to complete.

The parking improvements mark the final phase of the Kimbell's campus redevelopment.​​​
