The Park Sign

In the Dallas Central Business District, across from a Dallas Municipal building (where Lee Harvey Oswald was assassinated) is a city park. Long before the downtown block became Main Street Garden Park, the block was a parking garage structure.

At least one of the entrances to the garage had a sign comprised of four rectangular blocks each with one letter, altogether spelling the word PARK. The garage was demolished in 2007 to make room for a city park. The design cleverly included the sign – repurposed for a new meaning of the word.

Still from Robocop (1987)

The 1987 film Robocop was set in Detroit but largely filmed in Dallas. The “historic” PARK sign can be seen at approximately the 39-minute mark.
