Everyone should have a park nearby their home. Human beings need clean and refreshing public spaces where we can co-exist comfortably. A neighborhood is at its best with smaller parks scattered throughout. Open spaces give us somewhere to stop and think, to enjoy a nice day, and to engage in active recreation. Simple and elegant designs can allow a few simple elements — trees, grass, some walkways and a bench — to give a park a strong identity and implied use. At sjn + associates inc. we believe that parks should satisfy the needs of a broad range of users, and enhance and protect the natural environment. They should offer a free choice of activities, a release from the urban environment – a chance to be actively engage with the environment and to meet people.
