White River State Park
There are not many cities in the U.S. that can boast having a state park right in the center of their downtown, but Indianapolis can. As a consultant to a national Landscape Architecture firm, Landstory brought a local understanding and vision to the planning effort, to make sure the values, public vision and the local history were understood and appropriately translated as part of the Master Plan recommendations. Landstory was also responsible for the design and development of a number of details as part of the implementation including the canal walls, seating, lighting and landscape design. In addition to all we learned about the White River and the tow-path, we also learned riding bicycles in blowing snow is not for the weak of heart.
