Recreational facilities and parks are a tangible reflection of the quality of life in a community, providing gathering places for everyone. They provide identity for citizens and are one of the most important factors of how ‘livable’ communities are.
With years of parks and recreation experience, our team takes great pride in creating recreational opportunities for a community to be active, healthy, and social. We are knowledgeable of and sensitive to community needs, cost effective design, environmental and cultural resource issues, efficient use of resources, and long-term maintenance needs. We are flexible to make adjustments when priorities or budgets change and responsive in fitting new facilities into existing parks.
WDG has worked on over 60 parks, recreation and open space projects for local and regional municipalities, universities, property managers, neighborhoods, the Forest Service, the National Park Service, and others. We have prepared and implemented masterplans and led projects through design and construction documents, permitting, and construction administration.
Our work on these projects has included design of trail systems, ball fields, irrigation, lighting, parking, playgrounds, detention facilities, outdoor performance space, habitat restoration, and other elements.
