Project Update: Brownsville Park Charrette

On October 25, our team here at Jerry Pate Design collaborated with Sustainable Town Concepts to host a charrette with members of the Pensacola community. The topic of discussion was the forthcoming Brownsville Park project, for which we are in the design phase now.  When we are creating public outdoor spaces for locals to enjoy, it is so important for us to gain their perspectives. We were delighted by the chance to hear feedback and opinions from the very people who will be patrons of Brownsville Park in the future.   As a part of the Pensacola Design Project, Jerry Pate Design is donating our time and effort to make these Brownsville Park improvements. Upon completion, the L-shaped property may feature a playground, pavilion, picnic areas, and more.   We’re excited to break ground soon!   Photography Courtesy of Escambia County Community and Media Relations.

According to an article by Build Healthy Places Network, “An increasing body of evidence shows that the time people spend in urban green spaces promotes human connection, thereby enriching how we perceive the value of these spaces and each other.” And when we value something, we take better care of it.  So you see, having an easy and inviting place to meet up with friends, coworkers, and neighbors doesn’t just accommodate our own social […]
