SIZE

60 acres

AWARDS

Excellence in Architecture Merit Award, American Institute of Architects, Fort Wayne Chapter

A small community has big ideas for rethinking their
public park system.

As part of a multi-disciplinary team, MKM assisted in leading a comprehensive planning effort for the Ossian community to explore how their existing 60-acre park could be redeveloped to foster future economic growth.  Through a series of interactive community workshops, the plan focused on intergenerational activities and regional events including sporting fields, outdoor classrooms, a large amphitheater, an active adult playground, and a community pavilion.  In addition to this, careful consideration was given to the potential of integrated housing and infrastructure within the heart of the park itself in an effort to transform the space into a vibrant, sustainable development.
