Parks, Recreation, and Open Space


Creating engaging, equitable, and sustainable outdoor spaces for all people.

Our Parks, Recreation, and Open Space practice is passionate about park and greenway planning and design. We are dedicated to strong guiding principles developed over the past 30 years to assist in creating engaging, equitable, and sustainable recreational facilities. Through fieldwork and community engagement, we listen to the unique needs of our clients to develop solutions to meet those needs today and tomorrow.

Our team has completed nearly 300 park and open space projects across the Southeast and Upper Midwest, and across multiple scales and jurisdictions. More than a team dedicated to the creation of high-quality public open spaces, we have enthusiasm for tapping into the unique cultural and historic context of each community. Our approach covers the full project cycle – from master plan development through technical details for construction.
