Olive Park, Neighborhood Park
Olive Park is a creek-side park serving the historic Olive Park neighborhood in Santa Rosa. It has been rehabilitated and enhanced to better serve the neighborhood residents. Carlile • Macy provided landscape architecture and surveying services which included preparing a topographic map, a master plan and construction documents as well as facilitating meetings with city staff, advisory boards, and neighborhood residents. Design features of this rehabilitated park include a children’s playground, gazebo, restrooms and open space. This park, along with Prince Memorial Greenway, which is directly adjacent and also designed by Carlile • Macy, changed the face of downtown Santa Rosa, linking Historic Railroad Square to the downtown area and providing the impetus for much of the city center redevelopment that has since occurred.
