thinc design completed the master plan for Douglas Fluhrer Park. As one of the critical component pieces of Kingston’s waterfront, the development of this plan was an important project for the Community. thinc design worked with city staff, community stakeholders (through a working group) and the public, to prepare a concept for the park of the “articulated wild”.
Through a variety of design moves the concept celebrates the railway and industrial heritage of the park while enhancing opportunities for the community to interact with the park’s natural environment. The design sensitively incorporates various improvements including meandering pathways a variable widths, a central gathering space with shade structure, overlooks, parking lot improvements and proposed linkages to the surrounding community. The final product was an illustrative master plan with photomontages, summary report and cost estimate.
