Picture3Pima County Natural Resources, Parks & Recreation selected SAGE Landscape Architecture & Environmental to lead the development of the Picture Rocks District Park project. As Principal In-Charge, Lyndes set the approach to this park which started with a discussion about budget, scope and program to meet the project objectives.

We directed the formation of the consultant team, and approached flexible problem solving by listening and responding to both public and client direction. The park project included revising the master plan, integrating with existing facilities, master plan phasing, public meetings, the inclusion of ball fields, recreation areas, parking and numerous crucial amenities and elements. Working with a ten-year budget, we adjusted the scope of work to meet the budget while accomplishing key project objectives. To achieve program objectives and meet state and county environmental and permitting regulatory requirements, we completed native plant preservation documentation, biological assessment, and agency coordination. For the Picture Rocks Pool project, a separate contract, we served as a sub-consultant on the design team. The pool features a beach-style entry and has spray-and-play equipment throughout the pool area.
