Landscape Architecture Overview:

RDG collaborated with the City Staff, City Council, Steering Committee, and the citizens of Overland Park to develop a master plan for Thompson Park, a 3.8-acre park in the heart of downtown. Four initial plans were proposed to the community; two included moving the City’s farmers market to the park from its current downtown location. Guiding principles were to appreciate the greenspace, become a definitive park destination, anticipate the future, and support the downtown. Park Stroll, the final design that did not include a farmer’s market, was selected to be constructed in 2019.
