Parks and Recreation

Active, Passive, and Nature Based Opportunities

EOR works with local communities and government agencies to identify, plan, and design public recreational spaces including playgrounds, boat launches, fishing piers, regional trails, and conservation areas. EOR designs functional elements, layered with ecosystem rehabilitation practices to enhance a site's natural environment.

Community Hub - Fitchburg, WI

In implementing a Strategic Plan developed by the city to provide public space and amenities to underserved neighborhoods, EOR designed a signature, one of a kind park space. This dynamic design boasts community gathering spaces, an all-seasons building, covered activity space, an all-wheels bicycle course, and a multi-sensory play space.

Bottineau Field Park - Minneapolis, MN

EOR developed and led the implementation of a creative engagement process to gain stakeholder input on proposed developments at Bottineau Field Park in Northeast Minneapolis. The design team met with students at a local school, kids at the recreation center, and community members at an Art-a-Whirl event planned for the purpose within the park. The input received was collected and translated in a concept plan for improvements at the park that included a new full size basketball court, playground, splash pad, pool deck, and urban plaza. The project is currently in final design and will be constructed in fall of 2024.

Eagle Point Park Environmental Restoration - Dubuque, IA

Eagle Point Park is a historic 100-acre park located on a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River. The park has suffered ecological decline over recent decades due to heavy park use, pressures from invasive species, and stormwater runoff issues. EOR developed an environmental restoration plan to improve soil conditions, convert turf lawns to native prairies, and treat stormwater runoff at the source.
