Parks and Recreation

Since being founded in 1972, Keller & Kirkpatrick and its planning/design team offers services in all areas of park and recreational development for all levels of government agencies, municipalities, and organizations. The design team’s approach to park and recreational planning and development goes beyond the placement of man-made elements on the land-scape in order to provide the best economically feasible design solution. Our staff of planners, landscape architects, engineers, environmentalists, offer a team approach to bring a project from its conceptual stages to design and imple-mentation. On every project, our goals remain the same: to produce a cost-effective design that responds to project requirements.
