Killarney Bay Park

A park located at the intersection of Killarney's main street and Killarney Lake. The park respects both, has become a landmark in the community, and has, just a touch of, the shamrock.


Tanya Park

The project involves the renovation of a decade old park containing an outdated playground, a skating area, a woodland and open fields. With the active involvement of a neighborhood resident group the community was canvassed and resulting park geared to reconciling their disseparate needs and desires.

Maple Leaf Park

An existing park with drainage and structural issues is rebuilt. The project involved a creative drainage solution which recognized the need to protect mature stands of trees, the reconstruction of a playground, and the dismantling and rebuilding of a 'signature' arbour installed during a previous park renovation.



Athletic Fields


Harbourview Soccer Field

  A new soccer field is 'fitted' into an existing intensive recreation area. Project highlights include balancing a difficult grading operation, innovative drainage details, and, in addition to the soccer field, a sand volleyball court.



Manitoba Organization of Disk Sports @ Maple Grove Park

This development involved the design and construction of 4 full size multiuse (Soccer, Ultimate, Rugby & Football) as well as 2 dedicated ultimate fields in a riverbank park setting of over 160 acres. It involved balancing cut and fill in a phased project, a riverbank setting where erosion and sediment control will be an issue for the regulatory bodies, and the development of parking lots and multiple athletic fields.
