Parks & Recreation
Park design creates harmonious environments where people can gather and enjoy the natural surroundings.
Natural systems cannot be ignored when designing places for communities; rather, it is this very connection to the surrounding environment that forms the bond between people and place. We have a passion for sustainable landscape architecture that creates environments where people can thrive in harmony with their natural surroundings.
Pond’s resource-based and community-driven process to open space planning and design enables us to tailor solutions to the specific needs of rural, suburban, and urban environments. We enhance local residents’ expertise and perspectives with our knowledge of implementable recreational and environmental solutions, such as greenway design standards, stormwater requirements and sustainable site strategies. Our goal is to engage communities in meaningful dialogue about their vision, recreational needs, opportunities and alternative strategies.
We create award-winning, sensible solutions that bring nature and community together for public, private and non-profit clients across the country. 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.
