Vibrant Spaces for Active and Healthy Living

We design city parks, campgrounds, pavilions, trails, amphitheaters, and other recreational spaces to build strong communities. Organizations rely on us to plan and design active spaces because of our proven track record creating all sorts of venues that lead to fun, fulfillment, and healthy lifestyles. From large-scale master plans to modest improvements, every project we undertake receives the full attention and passion of our planning and design team. We guide you through a planning process that is collaborative and inclusive, ensuring that your vision, goals, and priorities inform your project from start to finish.

  • Gather input, discuss goals
  • Develop a meeting schedule
