The City of Otsego is a fast-growing suburban community northwest of Minneapolis. The City’s population and housing growth has spurred park development to accommodate the influx of new residents.
Recognizing the importance of recreational amenities to their expanding population, the City retained SRF to design three new neighborhood park facilities. These parks vary in size from five to seven acres and with both active and passive recreational amenities that include playgrounds, walking paths, basketball courts, tennis courts, a picnic pavilion, and athletic fields.
During the design process, SRF emphasized creating parks that support a wide variety of recreational activities and installed low-maintenance turf and landscape areas to minimize maintenance costs for the City.
