Join the Middle TN branch for a Centennial Park: Sustainable SITES, Sustainable Future
Chris Barkley, a Partner with Hodgson Douglas Landscape Architects, will use Nashville’s Centennial Park as a project profile to explore the Sustainable SITES Initiative, a comprehensive rating system, designed to distinguish and evaluate sustainable landscapes using performance based measurements unique to each site. The initiative encourages reduced water demand, filtration and reduction of stormwater runoff, creation of wildlife habitat, reduction of energy consumption, improved air quality, improved human health and increased outdoor recreation opportunities.
Hodgson Douglas Landscape Architects worked alongside Nelson Byrd Woltz Landscape Architects, Metro Nashville Parks, Metro Water Services, and the Centennial Park Conservancy to design and construct the most recent Master Plan and Phase 1 implementation of Centennial Park. The design team sought to create a design that honors the unique and rich history of Centennial Park, while celebrating the sites existing physical features, creating a place for all Nashvillians to experience their shared culture. Phase One of Centennial Park included the daylighting of Cockrill Spring, which to date had been running underground beneath the park, improved water quality and circulation in Lake Watauga, the creation of a variety of new gardens, meadow plantings, a permanent performance venue for Musicians Corner, and the articulation of many important ecological, hydrologic, geologic and historical connections within the park.
