Gorman Park Master Plan

City of Sharonville

Design Challenge: Gorman Neighborhood Park is an outdated, underused park on Sharonville’s west side with antiquated playgrounds, community pool, unused baseball fields, and old school building used for storage. To revitalize the park, the Sharonville Parks and Recreation Department needed a master plan with a key focus on public participation.

Design Solution: With input from the community and the Sharonville Parks and Recreation Department, MSP conducted a needs assessment for park elements for the site which included wet, dry and natural playground areas, multi-use shelters, additional walking paths, on-site parking, and basketball. We led multiple meetings, designed multiple concepts and animations which were refined for each subsequent meeting. Once these concepts were finalized, MSP facilitated a community input session to review final concepts and allow community members the opportunity to vote for/against or add to the site elements.

Design Outcome: Further discussion is currently in progress to finalize the park master plan.
