Recreational Planning & Design

Planning as a Contact Sport

From recreational trails to open spaces, playgrounds and athletic fields, we create outdoor spaces that allow us to reconnect with the world around us, or simply focus on playing or watching a great game, match or meet.  We understand the elements needed to enhance user enjoyment of recreational spaces and also keeping participants safe while playing.

We Bring the Outdoors Out

Well designed active and passive recreational facilities are a haven for the communities which they serve.  They can provide a place to interact with neighbors, exercise and improve health, and also commune with nature.  Our goal with each recreational facility is to develop well conceived spaces that reflect the values of the community, the surrounding environment, and act as a catalyst for playing, learning, enjoyment, and conservation.

From the initial planning, to design and construction, AMT’s team uses imaginative and creative design approaches coupled with the technical knowledge to develop engaging spaces.  This includes large athletic complexes with synthetic and natural turf fields, lighting and irrigation to address individual needs and the needs of local teams and recreational leagues.  It also includes small historic parks and monumental spaces for strolling and learning about the communities in which we live.  Since most park spaces contain numerous recreation activities, our designers are experts at weaving roads, trails, walks, parking, and utilities into a comprehensive design solution that reinforces the design and creates a place-making experience for children and adults of all ages.
