Parks, greenways, trails, campgrounds

Our knowledgeable landscape architects and planners have worked with agencies, municipalities, and private developers across the country to create distinctive places which people of all ages enjoy. Osborn Pacific Group provides comprehensive services to meet multiple objectives related to public use and recreation, natural and cultural resource protection, education, accessibility, and management and maintenance of public parks.

Notable Projects:


Glory Hole Recreation Area

Final design and construction documents for a 1,500-acre recreation area including campgrounds and day-use areas at the New Melones Reservoir, Calaveras County, California. Project components include recreation vehicle campsite design, boat-in campsites, roads and parking, domestic water system, sewage treatment plant and sanitary sewer, electri­cal system, restroom buildings, landscaping and sprinkler irrigation. Recreation ame­nities include trails, swim beach, children's play areas, fish cleaning stations, and a large amphithe­ater.


Maryhill State Park

Washington State Parks operates this popular campground and day-use facilities in the Columbia River Gorge. Osborn Pacific Group Inc. was retained to develop a new park master plan and to prepare Phase I construction documents to expand the park facilities. Planning included development of facilities to accommodate wind surfing; a day-use picnic and swimming area; additional recreational vehicle, tent and group camp sites; boat launch; wetland enhancement; interpretive exhibit; ranger residence; maintenance area; and the Klickitat County Information Center. Extensive coordination with the Yakama Indian Nation and public meetings were required, as well as an archaeological site investigation and cultural resource report.


McLane Creek Nature Trail

When the Washington Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) determined that the existing McLane Creek Nature Trail system did not provide adequate access for the many school groups and nature lovers that come to watch the salmon spawn in McLane Creek, they retained Osborn Pacific Group to design a trail extension and interpretative viewing platform. After performing a wetland delineation to ensure there would be no impacts associated with the trail and platform, we determined the alignment of the new boardwalks and compacted gravel on-grade trail and sited and designed a viewing platform with a capacity to accommodate 40 people.
