McKeithen Park is a neighborhood park, located at 134 Lawn Avenue in Stamford, adjacent to residential housing. This public park provides recreational amenities for its local residents, but was in need of renovation. The new play area is the first phase of the McKeithen Park Master Plan implemented. The master plan addresses the needs of neighborhood and park users by providing a variety of passive and active recreation areas including basketball courts, play area with play equipment provided by Kaboom, pavilion, splashpad, seating options, community garden, picnic areas, plantings, accessible walkways and natural stormwater infiltration.
The City of Stamford worked with Aris Land Studio to design the master plan, to organize neighborhood community meetings and to provide contract documents for construction and construction administration. Debra De Vries-Dalton served as landscape designer for the project from proposal to master plan development and construction documentation during her time at Aris Land Studio. Design by Aris Stalis.
