Riverfront park that includes passive areas, walking paths, and docks
From concept to construction documents for the park
RiverTown, a 4,000-acre master-planned community along the St. Johns River, which was designed by TSW, includes a variety of residential and retail in distinct districts. Within the districts are a variety of park spaces, including swim and tennis centers, a riverfront boathouse and dock area, and a regional recreational park. To connect all of the districts and park spaces, TSW’s Landscape Architecture Studio designed a network of multi-use trails and pedestrian-friendly streetscapes that allow convenient and safe access to all of the amenities.
Riverfront Park, one of the signature parks and open spaces in the community, is adjacent to the town center and will provide residents and visitors with passive areas, walking paths, and viewing decks along the St. Johns River. Two of the key features of the park will be the boat dock area, which will include two docks that extend out into the river and provide tie-up space for boats, and the event lawn, which will include a bandshell and fountain plaza. TSW was responsible for the design from concept to schematic and completed design development and construction documents for the park.
