Parks and Open Spaces

Oasis Design Group has extensive experience designing public parks and open spaces. Spaces can be as small as a ½-acre urban vest-pocket park or ones spanning hundreds of acres. Oasis’ staff understand the various functions of parks and open spaces, whose amenities can include skate parks, dog parks, formal gardens, gathering areas, open spaces, or trails through ecological/nature areas. Because each project’s scale and intended users are different, Oasis is mindful that its designs reflect the needs of the users, whether for passive or active recreation, and the carrying capacity of the land.
