Gorman Park Master Plan

City of Sharonville

Design Challenge: MSP provided master planning services for Gorman Neighborhood Park, an underutilized and outdated park on Sharonville’s west side. The current park had antiquated playgrounds, a community pool in major disrepair, an old school building currently used for storage, an asphalt walking path on the perimeter of the site, unused baseball fields, and a large open field used for pickup soccer games.
Design Solution: With input from core team members, 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 refined them 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. Further discussion is currently in progress to finalize the park master plan.
