Chicago Park District
Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates
In 2012, DGA began collaborating with MVVA on renovating and upgrading North Grant Park, one of Chicago’s most popular outdoor areas, totaling 23.54 acres. Design goals include enhanced safety/security, offerings/accessibility for visitors of all ages, emphasizing unique city/neighborhood identity, and sustainability. Our architectural landscape lighting design scope areas include landscape park paths (major and secondary), playground, climbing structures, ice ribbon, lawn valleys, tennis courts, and picnic groves. Scope tasks include all project phases from site/program investigation through construction administration.
