King Street Corridor

The King Street corridor provides an impactful gateway statement into Franklin. Main project elements include entry towers with vertical storyboards made of color-changing glass, a planted boulevard, trail amenities with nodes reflecting community history, and custom shade structures. All elements are connected by strategic lighting and landscaping. Over time, the mature landscape will establish a dynamic linear park experience. HWC lead a talented team of designers and fabricators including Cornerstone, Landtech, Circle Design Group, Smock-Fansler, and GRT Glass Design to implement this transformative project.

Overlook at Riverside

HWC led design for Overlook Park, an engaging, inclusive play and community space for all ages. A natural creek bed aquatic feature weaves its way through the site. Large lawn areas, landscape beds, and trees were used to surround the hardscape elements creating a softer transition to the adjacent natural woods and Flatrock River. The design also incorporates several highly desired community amenities–a signature climbing tower, accessible playground, sculpture garden, natural play elements, and outdoor dining areas. The Overlook Park cements Riverside Park as a regional destination and provides an anchor for the community just 3 blocks south of downtown and the City Center.

Seashore Water Park

HWC led the renovation of Seashore Waterpark from conception through construction. Beginning with a public survey and existing conditions study, concepts were developed, reviewed, and finalized alongside the parks department and an engaged steering committee. A major aquatics renovation, this project was implemented in two phases. Key features include an activity pool with toy structure, water slides, wave pool, current channel with vortex, and water walk. Sunbathing lawns and shade structure components complete the design. The city has also retained HWC Engineering to lead design efforts for an expansion of the facility.

Edison Park

The City of Hammond tasked our design team with incorporating a variety of recreational components that would meet the needs of the surrounding neighborhoods. Unique elements include an agility course, artificial turf sports courts with backer board surrounds, and a “skatespot”. Additionally, the custom play surfacing design illustrates historic themes of Thomas Edison’s inventions into a vibrant, contemporary graphic. Now rejuvenated, Edison Park has become central to the community’s quality of life and sense of place.
