Antelope Valley Union Park Plaza

City of Lincoln – Lincoln, NE

This plaza and park project incorporates a meandering waterway design with numerous crossings and serves as a flood control tool for the city. Constructed with sustainable elements, it features public art, three fountains, a large plaza, a scenic overlook, an amphitheater with seating for 200, a playground, and paved trails that connect to the city’s existing system. The plaza stretches over three blocks and offers amenities for festivals such as restrooms, seating, audio and power sources, recycling/trash receptacles and lighting. The project includes the two-story Jayne Snyder Trails Center, a hub for city trail users providing public meeting space, restrooms, retail space, and offices for a community health organization.
