Manhard Consulting performed the surveying and civil engineering design for the Town of Parker’s Discovery Park, located in the heart of downtown Parker. Manhard supported the Town of Parker with services that included survey, roadway alignment, profile, and sections, extensive dry utility coordination, wet utility design, and design of wet utility stubs to the future sites. The work involved extensive coordination with the existing electric transmission lines and design of a large box culvert to address the underground conveyance of major drainage way.
Discovery Park offers a unique experience in both summer and winter. Summer amenities include a band shell for performances and concerts, a park and plaza for picnics, and interactive splash pad fountains. In winter, the meandering park sidewalk is transformed into one of the few ice skating trails in the Country, complete with three fire pits. Discovery Park helps anchor the east end of Main Street, complimenting Town Hall, the Parker Arts, Culture, and Event Center, and the Douglas County Public Library. These enhancements to the Town of Parker have created a vibrant community gathering place all four seasons.
