Chandler Boulevard Bikeway Design, Burbank, Calif.
For Burbank and L.A., DEA provided engineering design, surveying and landscape architectural services for a two-mile long meandering, Class I multipurpose trail through Burbank. The trail is 14-ft. wide: 8-ft. width for bikes (4-ft. width in both directions), and 6-ft. width for pedestrians. The project incorporates over 250 trees, large expanses of turf and flowering groundcover.


Ovrom Park, Burbank, Calif.
DEA landscape architects and civil engineers provided master planning and final design services for this two-acre neighborhood park along Burbank’s revitalized South San Fernando Boulevard. The park includes a 7,000 sq. ft. community center with programmed recreational activities and unique artistic features such as silhouettes attached to the themed fences depicting children at play. The design allows the small site to include playgrounds, a basketball court, walking paths, picnic areas, open play turf areas and quiet spaces for reading or relaxing. The irrigation system uses recycled water. Porous pavement is featured in the entry courtyard, and green screens are used to provide a natural cooling effect while enhancing the architectural elevations. EA assisted the city with a comprehensive workshop and community input. Ovrom Park incorporates creativity, function, form and sustainable practices into an excellent example of a small urban space that provides so much to so many.


Freedom Park, Palm Desert, Calif.
DEA provided conceptual design services for a new 23-acre park. Freedom and patriotism were the themes evaluated for further development of elements. The site includes three lighted ball fields, two soccer fields, two sand volleyball courts, two lighted tennis courts, a skateboard plaza and stage, a playground area, picnic shelters, a proposed day care facility, a restroom/concession building, a fitness trail, open space landscaping (including perimeter plantings for screening and the buffering of noise) and a park entry treatment of patriotic colors and icons. As the project’s lead design coordinator, DEA’s landscape architect worked with the city to develop a comprehensive design that communicated the project theme and met the project budget. DEA’s civil engineering group was part of the design team and subconsultants (electrical engineering and building architecture). The conceptual planning and design took approximately two years. DEA worked closely with the city and Coachella Valley Recreation and Parks District. The site also is used by the Desert Sands Unified School District.
