dwg.’s design for Sand Beach Park is a representation of the values of the Austin community: health and wellness, access, responsible development and environmental sustainability. This community hub combines world class swimming facilities, multi-functional play fields, an off-site watershed stewardship system and a trail connection through urban environmental planning.
Located adjacent to Lady Bird Lake, the design treats water runoff to protect this precious asset through a series of native green roofs, bioswales, rain gardens, a bio-filtration pond and a strategic grading system. This advanced system allows the landscape to act as an innovative and inviting bioengineering solution.
Sand Beach Park was honored by the Texas Chapter of ASLA with a Merit Award in 2013.
