Recreational Planning & Design

The perception of a community by current and future residents is linked to where and how people spend their leisure time in that community. Therefore, progressive communities plan and design for the integration of sustainable parks, recreation and open space elements with traditional components of community design.  Our philosophy of recreation planning and design embraces the needs and desires of current and future residents focusing on opportunities for recreation, connectivity and interaction with both natural and man-made environments for leisure activity.

JMT's Recreation Planning and Design Team consists of landscape architects, park and recreation specialists, planners and engineers who have extensive experience with the redesign and retrofit of existing recreation facilities, the design of new facilities and the integration of facilities with other land uses.  At JMT we have experience with a variety of innovative and sustainable solutions with respect to design, materials and techniques.  We have experience in all aspects including,  Park Master Planning, Park and Recreation Feasibility Studies, Open Space Plans, Trail and Greenway Plans, Playground Design, Plaza, Band Stand and Town Center Design, Wayfinding and Interpretive Signage, Park Construction, Community Visioning and Public Involvement.
