Parks & Recreation

Park design creates harmonious environments where people can recreate and enjoy the natural surroundings.

Pond’s Landscape Architecture group creates award-winning, sensible solutions that bring nature and community together for public, private, and non-profit clients throughout the Southeast.

A process is employed to open space planning and design that is both resource-based and community-oriented, tailoring solutions to the specific needs of rural, suburban, and urban environments.  Local residents’ expertise and perspectives are enhanced with Pond’s knowledge of implementable recreational and environmental solutions, such as greenway design standards, stormwater requirements, and sustainable site strategies. Communities are engaged in meaningful dialogue about their vision, recreational needs, and opportunities, and alternative strategies.

We believe that the natural systems cannot be ignored while designing places for communities. Rather, it is this very connection to the surrounding environment that forms the bond between people and place. Our passion for sustainable landscape architecture creates environments where people thrive in harmony with their natural surroundings. Our experienced staff of architects, engineers, LEED accredited professionals, and landscape architects provide innovative and sustainable solutions for our Parks & Recreation clients.

Pond’s mission is summed up in the maxim:

“Envisioning Sustainable Environments.”

Sustainability is the foundation of every solution at Pond, influencing present actions and guiding future legacy.
