The Master Plan for the development of Escondido Creek Parkway created a unique opportunity for Dunaway to collaborate with the San Antonio River Authority and the City of Kenedy to help define a vision for transforming an intermittent creek floodplain into a multi-purpose public open space in the center of Kenedy, Texas. The project takes a multi-faceted approach by restoring native habitat, detaining and filtering runoff, and providing valuable open space and recreation opportunities for the surrounding community.
A hike and bike trail system meanders along the creek, providing a connection from surrounding neighborhoods and businesses to the natural waterway and network of parks created by the Master Plan. Picnic areas, a playground, an amphitheater, and a large pavilion provide open gathering space, while trailheads, entry monuments, and signage begin to create a unique identity for the Kenedy parks system.
Dunaway provided planning + landscape architecture and traffic services on the project.
