Sports Reserves, Parks, Trails

We understand the increasing demand made on our parks and reserves and the interests that compete for a piece of this public open space.

We appreciate the scope of open space areas such as foreshores, bushland areas, waterways, parks, botanical gardens, playgrounds, trails and sport and recreation reserves for which local government has a management and / or planning responsibility.

Planning for open space must consider a range of social, environmental and operational requirements. There is often the expectation that it will provide for demands associated with changing lifestyles, changing demographic and building development trends, and changing community expectations relating to natural environments.

More recently we have become involved in the planning and design of Dog Parks.

For many of our projects we work as part of a collaborative team that responds to the specific requirements of the project.

The following provides an overview of the range of open space planning projects we have completed.
