Parks & Playgrounds

Open space is a fundamental component of many projects.The function of the open space differs from project to project. Areas may be active recreational spaces suited to sporting use and play, passive recreational space for relaxation or appreciation of natural environments, a specifically designed visual element to make a statement or create a pleasant community space.

How that space is designed is essential to the success of the project and the resource that the space provides to the community or user.

The projects shown in these images shows the variety and styles of design and recreational spaces.
