Wardle Fields Regional Park

Transforming farmland into a prominent landmark

The goal of the project was was to turn a flat piece of farm land into a park-like setting with hills and valleys and meandering walkways, generously landscaped zones and turf play areas for residents of the southwest quadrant of the County. The mass grading created unique spaces and land form features that enclose and separate various activities within the park.

The introduction of a 300-ft. long bouldering wall provides a monumental back drop and frames the splash pad. The critical placement of the 25-ft. high fire watch tower slide at the high point of the park provides a landmark and point of reference for visitors from any location in the park.
