Jasper Townsite Landscape Plan
Client Parks Canada
Location Jasper | Alberta | Canada
Parks Canada initiated the Jasper Townsite Landscape Plan in response to a growing awareness of the need for more environmentally appropriate design and management of open space. O2 prepared a landscape plan for the town that both directs new public landscape development and specifies appropriate maintenance practices for developed areas.
Following a detailed analysis of existing conditions and the town context and landscape character, O2 developed an extensive document outlining design and management recommendations for the town and for specific sites. The plan recommended landscape and planting plans, landscape element details such as plant selection and placement, outdoor lighting requirements, site furnishings, pedestrian pathways, and circulation systems.
