Bolton & Menk has created beautiful, sustainable parks and recreation facilities for more than 300 communities. We engage your community members, build on their ideas, and find solutions that work today, and tomorrow. At Bolton & Menk, our approach covers the full project – from big picture to the technical details of construction and function. We know listening is the most valuable step in the park and recreation design process and are committed to incorporating sustainable design elements into every project.
Our staff take the time to understand the culture, historical context, needs, and uniqueness of every community. Our project management approach is rooted in communication, collaboration, and trust. These principles are key in managing and delivering park and recreation services that encompasses a clear understanding of existing conditions, a vision for the future, and an actionable plan to reach that vision. We believe successful park and recreation design is an economic driver that creates destinations as well as positive transitions to surrounding land use.
