Recreation centers enhance our quality of life and create amenity-packed communities that strengthen the economic and environmental well-being of the places that we live.
- Public parks reconnect citizens to nature.
- Amphitheaters support local musicians and arts programs.
- Covered pavilions introduce families to their local growers at farmers’ markets.
- Outdoor ice rinks bring joy and serve as a gathering place for winter activities.
At Shive-Hattery, our team of experienced architects and engineers work with municipalities of all sizes to create spaces that support environmental stewardship, attract visitors, and grow healthier, happier families.
From master planning that carves ambitious pathways through neighborhoods.
To renderings that bring your community park concept to life.
And, finally to the construction of your recreation center — our firm will help you develop places to play, exercise, and enjoy nature.
As an essential public service, the planning and design of public parks is a funding priority for cities that understand the economic value of places with thoughtful conservation, access to outdoor spaces, and recreational appeal. Our staff can help you identify dedicated funding mechanisms, as well as act as site-selection consultants to help you better understand the role a new park development might have on your community.
