Description:

TSW was retained by the City of Douglasville to create a downtown park from concept to construction documents. The goal was to create a park for the City’s downtown district that would outline a clear vision and achievable action items to further catalyze the surrounding area.

Designed to accommodate events ranging from community festivals to traveling shows the Douglasville Downtown Greenspace is a new 2-acre amphitheater and green room with a flex lawn at the edge of the downtown open to the public year-round. Another building includes concessions, bathrooms, event spaces and a rooftop area.

A key component of the design is the stormwater collection and reuse system.  The park has a large playable art area, splash pad, iconic gateway sign and bridge, putting green, art displays, custom outdoor furniture, and a large plaza.
