South Central Park

In downtown Winter Haven, FL, the city’s South Central Park area was recently revitalized to create a multi-functional space for public use in both daytime and nighttime. These improvements were part of Winter Haven’s comprehensive effort to expand its award-winning network of connected parks and multi-purpose trails while creating a community open area space. The area can be utilized during the weekday as a typical business-oriented urban environment, while the streets in the multiple block area can be closed with retractable bollards and converted after hours into a flat piazza event space. Detailed components include unique shaded swings, shaded bicycle repair facilities, landscaping, interactive and customizable LED surface and inground lighting system, decorative walls, planters, human and canine drinking fountains, custom digital interactive visitor information kiosk, and custom lithomosaic tile city logos and street nameplates embedded in walkways. Pennoni developed a revised Master Plan and redesign for the improvements and integrated into the project included using High Definition Laser Scanning surveying to gather existing site conditions survey data, and preparing a 3D visualization video to convey project details to City stakeholders.
