  • Functionality – the park will be designed to be aesthetic, inviting and easy to use. Elements will have multiple uses where possible.  
  • Adaptability – the park will be designed to accommodate many uses and will encourage participant use through creative design and flexible spaces.  
  • Innovation- the park will be designed in a way that will be low maintenance and limit water usage. The park design should meet the City of Ashland’s Climate and Energy Action Plan goals.
