Communities are constantly looking for new ways of introducing residents and visitors to the natural environment. We take pride in enhancing outdoor spaces to provide greater connectivity and accessible opportunities for all to enjoy what the world around us has to offer.
Our professionals provide site planning, design, and construction services for community parks, forest preserve districts, and homeowners associations that include permitting, utility coordination, stormwater upgrades, grading, and parking improvements. We have also designed many multi-use paths which are being incorporated more and more frequently for pedestrians, runners, and bicyclists.
HLR’s environmental team can help enhance and maintain native areas to promote natural plant and wildlife habitats. These areas augment parks and paths and can present an educational component to any project. We also facilitate community outreach by developing newsletter articles, website postings, and coordinating volunteering events for our recreational clients.
