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 explores potential park programming elements for discussion by the Parks & Recreation Committee.
