About this Project
Sherwood worked with the Office of Cheryl Barton and the San Jose Redevelopment Agency on the Guadalupe River Park – Arena Green. This 4.5 acre project site is bounded by the Guadalupe River to the west and Guadalupe Parkway (Hwy. 87) to the east. The park design studied accommodating a Cirque du Soleil show a few months of the year, which required that park layout and materials meet Cirque’s standard specifications. During the Cirque’s off-season, the park is to transform to accommodate other active and passive uses. Sherwood participated in the feasibility studies, provided conceptual level engineering design, and led the development of a comprehensive hardscape materials matrix that evaluated the cost/benefits of numerous impervious, pervious, permanent, and temporary paving systems to be used in different programming areas.
