Planned in the tradition of the New Urbanism, Grand Cornell is a multi-phase, mixed-use community where the parks play a key role in defining the character of the two residential communities. The largest park is a six-acre passive and active space that anchors the view at the end of the main street. The view is punctuated by a 40-foot clock tower. The radial street pattern that emerges from the park, sets up the structure of the corresponding park landscape.
This park succeeds because it is formative, and allows for a wide range of opportunities for recreation and socialization. It also helps to establish a clear and distinct identity for the community.
