Elwood, IL - Deer Run Park Preliminary Plan

616 views

Published on

I worked with the Village of Elwood to prepare a Preliminary Park Plan for Deer Run Park. The challenge of this 37-acre linear park was to transform the space from industrial buffer to a neighborhood park.

This presentation illustrates the final Preliminary Plan as approved by the Park & Recreation Committee and Village Board including construction costs and implementation schedule.
