HPI collaborated with EOA Architects on the master plan for one of Nashville’s largest and most historic parks. The 336-acre park is also one of Nashville’s most active regional parks and includes a golf course, baseball, and softball facilities, a lake, community center, a dog park, and numerous picnic shelters, play areas and trails. The master plan provides a comprehensive guide for future developments, unifies and improves pedestrian and vehicular circulation. HPI was involved in all aspects of the plan including the extensive community outreach process. The master plan was completed in 2009.
In 2012, HPI was charged with the development of the first phase of the master plan and served as the lead for the project. The improvements involved creating a large event ﬁeld, stormwater overﬂow infrastructure, new stream habitat and water feature, parking lot, relocation of water main, and baseball ﬁeld. The event ﬁeld provided walking paths, festival areas, a large plaza, seating berm, and location for public art. The project was completed from design to construction in 10 months. It opened on October 13th for the Park’s 100-year anniversary.
