Comprehensive and elegant; good interpretation of the local landscape.
Whitetail Woods Regional Park received a Merit Award in the General Design category.
Whitetail Woods Regional Park is the first new park Dakota County has developed in over 20 years. A collaborative design team of landscape architects, civil engineers, and architects worked closely with the client team and stakeholder groups to vision, program, design, and implement a “21st Century Park”.
Over 10 miles of trails, an event pavilion, nature play area, and camper cabins were creatively placed within a diverse 450 acre landscape. Landscape architects guided the design and development process to create a park with unique character, each move inspired by the site and the experiences it provided.
Excellent in scope and detail; spoke to regional scale.
