Ms. Trigg-Myers was a local community activist who had a passion for assisting families in their transition
from subsidized housing to self-sufficiency. During her career as a property manager, she became an
advocate for fair, safe and sanitary housing practices for families in need throughout Dallas County and
nationally. Her work ethic earned her numerous accolades and stellar reviews from the Housing and Urban Development Board (HUD). Her advocacy work led her to lobby for change for low-income and affordable housing and property beautification on many levels.
Renaming the park underpins this legacy Irene H. Trigg-Myers cofounded Abounding Prosperity, which is just a few miles from the park, on the very principles and morals that made her successful throughout her life; selfless vision and dedication to community. Abounding Prosperity Inc., a nonprofit organization, was founded to respond to social and health disparities devastating communities of color in Dallas County.
