From the park’s conception in the spring of 1992, through the conclusion of the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games, TSW served as the lead planner and landscape architect for this 1,200-acre world-class equestrian center.
Working with the site’s unique natural features, TSW’s Master Plan for The Georgia International Horse Park focused on a successful merger of recreational and equine uses. TSW’s second phase of work involved program analysis and comprehensive site design for all requirements of the Summer Games. This was followed by a festive landscape/hardscape design through construction documents.
TSW’s design for the 200-acre equine core area, produced in conjunction with equestrian designer Robert Jolicoeur of Montreal and L.A.S. Architects, included twelve barns (1,000 stalls) around landscaped courts, numerous jump/dressage show and training rings, an indoor show arena, show operations facilities, and the show jumping stadium shown below.
