Landscape & irrigation design
Park & amenity design
Em Dub Design worked as a sub-consultant to CWC Consulting Group to assist with landscape and irrigation design for landscape open space/tracts and a centralized park parcel. Em Dub assisted CWC and coordinated with the McWhinny development review team to produce a unified identity to the landscape buffers and create a centralized park.
The centralized park tract was designed as a focal point for the primary entrance to the community and to be multi-generational in appeal. Included within the park design is a meandering loop walk for passive walking/exercise. The looped walk surrounds an open play-turf area large enough for multiple outdoor games. Also offset from the play field is an accessible play structure surrounded by trees that will provide ample shade creating a respite from the Colorado sun while still engaging in the park activities. Lastly, the play structure has direct access to a picnic shelter and other bench seating providing plenty of areas for future residents to enjoy the amenity.
