Planning and landscape architecture services for the 1996 Olympic Games equestrian center
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.
