TSW designed Rivertown, a 4,000-acre master-planned community along the St. Johns River that includes a variety of residential and retail spaces, as well as distinct districts with a variety of park spaces and recreational amenities. The community’s swim and tennis centers, riverfront boathouse, and dock area, and regional recreational park are all connected by a network of multi-use trails and pedestrian-friendly streetscapes designed by TSW’s Landscape Architecture Studio. These trails and streetscapes, known as Rivertown Riverfront Park, provide convenient and safe access to all of the community’s amenities.

One of the signature parks and open spaces in is the Rivertown Riverfront Park, which is adjacent to the town center and provides residents and visitors with passive areas, walking paths, and viewing decks along the St. Johns River. The park is designed to be a hub of activity, providing opportunities for residents to enjoy the natural beauty of the St. Johns River while also promoting fitness and wellness.

The park offers a variety of recreational activities, including a boat dock area, which includes two docks that extend out into the river and provide tie-up space for boats, and an event lawn, which includes a bandshell and fountain plaza. The boat dock area is an ideal spot for fishing, boating, and other water sports, while the event lawn is perfect for outdoor concerts and events.

TSW was responsible for the design of the park from concept to schematic and also completed design development and construction documents for the park. The park is a great example of how TSW’s landscape architecture studio can design a park that seamlessly blends in with the community and provides an array of recreational opportunities. TSW’s design approach emphasizes the importance of creating a park that is not only visually appealing but also functional and sustainable. The park is designed to be an integral part of the Rivertown community, serving as a focal point for residents to gather and enjoy the natural beauty of the St. Johns River.
