Playground and water park renovation
Published:
Vimy Ridge Park

Re-design of the existing park in Winnipeg included new playgrounds and design of the first splash pad in Winnipeg. Yet, by far the biggest challenge was drainage. The old park had sunk, becoming a bathtub every spring, and with hundreds of mature elm requiring preservation and limiting grading interventions. The ultimate solution involved careful re-grading and installation of a subgrade drainage system.

Role: designer and project manager, responsible for detailed design and all construction drawings, including surface and subsurface drainage design.
