City of Perry: Jaycees Park

Details:

Client: City of Perry

Location: Perry, Georgia

Status: Design Development

Highlights:

  • Landscape architecture services for a city park and streetscape

Description:

TSW worked with the City of Perry to create a vehicular roundabout directly adjacent to a new city park (design for both in progress). The new roundabout aims to control local traffic growth and congestion at the current intersection with minimal negative residential impacts. This roundabout aims to slow travel speeds near the future park while still moving vehicular traffic through the intersection at a continuous flow, allowing people to travel safely and efficiently to the park, to adjacent neighborhoods, to the adjacent cemetery, and to the main arterial road.

This park was designed as a memorial park, honoring both veterans and Perry citizens through engraved polished granite memorial walls and a tranquil reflective fountain. A remnant of the old granite retaining wall is preserved and rehabbed to create a shaded plaza and seating area near the future renovated gas station on site.
