Clarksville, Tennessee

Starting in 1989, TSW created and consulted on a phased development plan along the Cumberland River and old town district of Clarksville, Tennessee. The Master Plan uses both architectural and landscape features to bridge the isolated waterfront with the downtown core, providing a framework for private sector retail development with a distinctive river focus. The refurbished River Park contains a mile-long promenade, 500-seat amphitheater, river excursion boats, and picnic facilities. The promenade is infused with mass plantings of cherry trees, which serve as the centerpiece for the spring River Festival.

TSW also developed a comprehensive Street Tree Master Plan which provided recommendations on the species, hardscape details, and street furniture. The project received a Merit Award for Planning from the Georgia Chapter of the American Society of Landscape Architects in January 1990.
