Design & Construction

Our mission is to provide clean, green safe and accessible open space to contribute to improving individuals, families, and communities' quality of life.

The Design and Construction Unit is responsible for open space planning, park design, and construction. Our project managers implement improvement projects to passive and active open space in:

  • Neighborhood Parks
  • Historic Parks
  • Athletic Complexes & Golf Courses
  • Historic Burying Grounds
  • Active Cemeteries
  • Urban Wilds

Once a project has been identified and funded, the project managers work with the community to identify specific goals through a series of public meetings and develop a schematic plan to base the bid documents upon.
