Landscape Architecture Overview:

The design approach to Forest Grove Park began with a comprehensive inventory and analysis of existing environmental conditions of the Park site, as well as adjacent properties and the regional watershed context of the Park. Through this initial discovery phase, RDG determined a greater opportunity existed for the City of Bettendorf to propose future development possibilities for several hundred acres of property adjacent to and within the region of the Park. RDG completed a land use plan for approximately 400 acres of property contiguous with the Park in conjunction with the master plan of the Park, and also developed a campus master plan for the future Forest Grove Elementary School, and thus was able to recommend future development patterns that minimize environmental impact, create shared vehicular and trail transportation corridors and facilities, and maximize public and private capital investment and long-range maintenance and operation dollars.
