Twenty-acre Marshall Community Park is set to re-open next month after a spate of improvements. Vancouver-based MGH Associates Planning and Engineering led the design team to implement phase one of the city park’s master plan.
Improvements include new paved access to the park and an 85-stall parking area, 3,000 feet of concrete paths, landscaping and irrigation, improvements to the community garden, a new restroom building, site lighting, picnic tables and benches and new community sports fields. The site design included ADA improvements that provide wheelchair accessibility to the entire park. The site improvements were located to preserve many of the park’s mature trees and to protect them from park activity. Environmentally-friendly permeable pavers were used.
Portland-based Atlas Landscape Architecture and Vancouver-based DSP Architecture worked closely with MGH and the Vancouver-Clark Parks Department staff, and Vancouver-based Larry O. Collins completed construction of the project.
The park will re-open with Spring Fest on June 3.
