Park playground in the process of being built

How we design and build

Our park development team is a dedicated group of landscape architects, engineers, archaeologists, arborists, and GIS technicians.

Projects may consist of small park improvements that are designed in-house or larger multi-year projects that require a variety of consultants.  

After parks are designed, contractors are hired to build them, including playground renovations, pathway and seawall improvements, and new destination parks.

We manage park projects through public engagement, conceptual and technical design, and construction.

New parks

As the city grows, new green spaces are vital to the health of our communities.

Park renovation

All parks eventually age to the point where their amenities and materials need updating.

Path and Seawall upgrades

Our Seawall and paths are under constant wear and tear due to weather, tides, and heavy use by pedestrians and cyclists.

Recently completed parks

Visit and celebrate our new and recently renovated park spaces.
