Parks and open space enhance the livability of communities by promoting healthy activity, and by providing a place for gathering and quiet retreat.

Alta staff include former parks and open space agency managers and professional designers with experience taking these areas from concept through completion, and managing them over the long term. We understand the opportunities, challenges, funding mechanisms, planning steps, and design, management, and maintenance standards specific to sites in urban to remote settings. Alta’s approach emphasizes community engagement and guidance from policymakers to develop implementable plans adapted to specific community goals. We provide a public involvement and decision-making strategy tailored to each project and setting.
