CRANE CREEK PARK
The Crane Creek Pedestrian Park and Nature Center is 2.6 acres of renovation to an existing neighborhood pocket park located in Columbia, SC. Brownstone designed the park to include a new 0.26 mile recycled rubber walking and jogging trail to support healthy living initiatives currently being planned by local government and school districts. In addition, the park incorporates a Nature Center that accommodates outdoor classes related to the study of native South Carolina plant life, insects and agriculture. The center is designed to hold approximately 25-30 students and is adjacent to a 0.06-mile nature trail. A new neighborhood-friendly entrance is part of the design and includes a brick column entryway and landscaping. Additional elements include new landscaping along Crane Church Road, lighting, gravel pathways and covered picnic shelters.
