Prior to the commencement of this redevelopment project, Ozark Community Park was an existing highly-programmed, but out-dated and inefficient recreational park juxtaposed between an existing residential community and an environmental protection area. Schollen & Company Inc. developed a vision to redesign and retrofit the existing park. The primary objective was to create a mutually beneficial relationship between the park and the natural environment. In addition, the existing recreational amenities were in need of reorganization, expansion and enhancement. Due to the restriction of existing fixed facilities, use patterns and natural areas, educational and interpretive components of the new design needed to be conveyed through unique design details.
