Select Examples of Potentially Comparable Work
Conceptual Studies for Various Parks Associated with a Local Health Care System.
The images below are examples from work completed as design studies related to various existing or proposed parks. The sites ranged from highly developed to naturalistic. The focus of the designs ranged from engaging those passing through the site to countering erosion and site degradation while providing destination-based passive recreation.
Private Park, Lookout Mountain, TN
This privately funded park grew out of concern for pedestrian and cyclist safety at a dangerous intersection. The directive behind the project was to create an attractive and useful park within the established neighborhood and provide a means of allowing pedestrians and cyclists to exit the street prior to the intersection and bypass the area of vehicular conflict.
Post Street Park.
Post Street Park was a minimally developed park in Grantville, GA. It included a pool, but little else. This design studied the possibility of constructing a system of trails through the woodland and location of a proposed community center and associated parking.
North Cove, Peachtree City, GA
Based on Andres Duany's concepts of New Urbanism, the design of North Cover neighborhood incorporated housing organized to relate to public park space that was highly designed and connected by walks to other parks in the development and a path system along the lake. The design for the lake-side park included many green infrastructure elements, common now, but uncommon at the time, including pervious pavement and stormwater infiltration.
The Preserve at Stoney Ridge, Lake Martin, AL
The design of Common Areas, access, and plantings was intended to preserve and showcase the existing ecosystem. This work included construction of boardwalks, utilization of boulder outcrops, placement of a covered bridge for vehicular access over a stream, and use of native and suitable companion plants.
