Projects Civic Center Park
CGA reimagined a vacant lot outside of the Community Center that would inherently become a gateway to the Village’s civic area and collection of municipal complexes. The CGA design team approached the project as a timeless design that would relate to its surrounding functions of government, recreation and open space and would communicate a continued, upscaled quality. The park’s main component included a flexible open lawn area that doubled as a ‘civic’ green space that could be used for its versatility. The lawn area, outside of its passive day-to-day activity, could become a dynamic space that would transform into an event space to hold concerts, food trucks, community fitness activities, and markets. All of these components were incorporated to support programming in the Community Center and serve as an economic driver to the area. Other park components include an artwork plaza, a custom pergola design that enhances the branding of the area, sculptural boulder elements, passive congregation areas, and a pump track. The project also included lush landscape improvements, site drainage, and site lighting.
