With over 40 years of experience in landscape architecture, urban planning, and economic development, James Toal shaped much of today’s Fort Worth. Join us as Librarian Linda Barrett reviews his career, beginning with his role at the Fort Worth Planning Department in the early 1970s, where much of his work involved parks and the Trinity River. He left the City in 1985 to work for a private firm and continued to influence the Fort Worth cityscape as a consultant on several projects until his death in 2013. To tell the story of James Toal is to tell the story of Fort Worth during those years. So don’t miss this chance to take a deep dive into how our modern city took shape.
