Greenways Incorporated specializes in parks and recreation master planning. The scope of work for our parks and recreation plans can vary greatly, from detailed and site-specific design, to framework plans for entire regions. Our clients also vary and include private developers, municipalities, and entire metropolitan regions.
The initial stages of our park master planning process entail 1) collaboration with the client, stakeholders, and residents to determine desired park facilities through a public involvement process, and 2) fieldwork and GIS analysis to identify site constraints and opportunities. Once a program is determined, we develop a master plan document that includes conceptual and/or detailed site plans, budget costs, and maintenance and operations strategies. The master plan document is typically the first step toward construction and is often required for funding applications.
Some of our recent parks and recreation projects include:
> The Archuleta County, Colorado, Regional Parks, Recreation, Open Space, and Trails Master Plan (which determines needs and recommendations for regional, district, community, and neighborhood parks along with specific site facilities);
> The 2,000-acre Floyd Lamb Park in Las Vegas, Nevada (which includes an equestrian park, an equestrian/pedestrian trail system, an archaeological museum, and renovations to an existing ranch);
> The Ararat River Comprehensive Recreational Master Plan (which includes three parks along three miles of riverfront greenway trail); and,
> A private community, Briar Chapel of Newland Communities (which includes an approximately 1,300-acre community trails system, designed in collaboration with IMBA and TORC for a public mountain bike trail system).
