TSW’s Landscape Architecture Studio was recently retained to provide planning and design services for Nathan Benderson Park east of Sarasota, Florida. The park contains a 600-acre lake, which will be adapted into a world-class flat water rowing venue, and surrounding park land that is envisioned to have activities for all age groups.

Once the 2,000 meter course is implemented, the venue will likely become one of the top courses in the world. Nationally-recognized rowing coaches have commented that Benderson Park has the potential to become one of the fairest courses, and while similar venues are typically isolated, Benderson is surrounded by much needed amenities, such as hotels and restaurants, for these types of regional and national events.
