Halpern Park is a neighborhood park nestled in a low-density neighborhood bordered by Tilly Mill Road in Doraville. The area is enclosed by Peachtree Industrial Boulevard, I-285, and rail lines.
TSW was retained by the City of Doraville as the lead design firm to provide landscape architecture services for renovations to the park. TSW was also in charge of the management of a team of architects, and civil, structural, electrical, and geotechnical consultants. As part of the project, TSW was responsible for design development, construction documents, cost estimating and permitting.
The overall design and recommended renovations to Halpern Park include: strengthening connections to the nearby elementary school, restoring and enhancing the existing streambed, incorporating a native woodland and wetland gardens, reducing parking and improving circulation, providing a new playground structure, converting existing tennis courts to futsal (soccer court) by resurfacing and adding seat walls for viewing, and including a basketball half court and multi-purpose playfields.
