Sherwood ParkCity of Odessa Odessa, Texas
The City of Odessa selected PSC to complete a master plan and phase one construction documents for the renovation of Sherwood Park — a 55-year-old, 60-acre park in the center of Odessa. The park had not experienced any major renovation or reinvestment since its construction in the 1950s and needed a lot of updating.
PSC landscape architects began by working closely with the city staff to outline existing and proposed services and amenities. Next, they met with numerous athletic leagues and the public to gather input about the park’s program and future use. The design team developed a new master plan for the park that responds to the current needs and desires of the citizens and will retool the park for the next 50 years.
PSC moved from the master plan into design for the first phase bid documents for the project. The construction is currently underway and includes a new, four-field baseball complex with concessions and restrooms, a walking trail throughout the park and a new playground. It also features a ship and ocean-themed area, a barnyard-themed area, insect- and nature-themed area, soccer field improvements, and new irrigation and controls for more than 60 acres.
