Conceptual Design | Master Planning | Wildlife Habitat Enhancement | Design for Floodway/Floodplain Areas | Graphic Presentation
BRECKON landdesign completed a conceptual master plan for Margaret Aldape Park, the first park in Meridian planned for development along the Boise River. Envisioned as a passive-use natural area for walking, picnicking, cultural events, fishing, and non-motorized water sports, our designers also identified opportunities for theming and placement of public art to reference the agricultural history of the property and Basque heritage of the Aldape Family who donated the property to the City.
Because the 78-acre parcel is located entirely within the Boise River Floodway and Floodplain, design of the park carefully considered placement of built structures and hardscape site improvements, as well as the impact of seasonal fluctuations in water levels on these and other park recreational amenities.
The design program also included enhancement of wildlife habitat to retain and encourage the diverse animal species such as turkey, fox, deer, and various waterfowl that live on and migrate through the site.
