I work in the Art District in the northeast side of downtown and [major bank] helped sponsor the building of new park in the area. Just north of downtown across Woodall Rodgers is the area called Uptown and the city wanted to join the two.
Woodall Rodgers is below street level so the city came up with a plan to build a park over the freeway. They basically built a deck over the road and turned the freeway into a tunnel.
The park was finished in October and it's close enough to walk there during my lunch hour (if it's not freezing cold outside). Here is their website.
Here are some pictures I've taken in the park:
