The Elmer W. Oliver Nature Park is an 80-acre community park located along the beautiful, wooded corridor of Walnut Creek in Mansfield, Texas. Dunaway provided civil engineering, master planning, phasing strategy, and design services for the Park, following the original master plan’s vision to provide an enduring community resource with passive recreation, cultural history, and nature education opportunities.  

The Park preserves the site’s unique ecosystems and offers visitors an invigorating, immersive experience in nature. A 2014 Texas ASLA Merit Award winner, the park also preserves the legacy of the Oliver-Williams family members, offering a place to learn more about the regional history and agrarian lifestyle from the early days of Mansfield.
