In the urban core of Oklahoma City, Sherwood is working with Hargreaves Associates and the Mayor’s office to design Oklahoma City’s new 40-acre Central Park as a paradigm of sustainable urban public space. Sherwood’s role, as ecological engineer, is to integrate the principals of sustainable design including water conservation and aquifer recharge; ecosystem creation and green streets integration; materials and waste reduction; renewable energy generation and conservation and; community education. Sherwood has developed goals and metrics, and established strategies based on cost, climate, and program which not only make this park an example for others but will create a legacy for the city.
