    Designing Modern Park Facilities: Part 1 of 3 Internal and External Building Components – The Unsung Heroes of Park Facilities

    The National Recreation and Park Association (NPRA) estimate that Americans visit their local parks and recreation facilities an average of 29 times per year. Forest Park alone attracts 13 million visitors annually, and one-day events such as the Great Forest Park Balloon Race attracts thousands of visitors in a single day. With this type of high usage by the general public, it’s no wonder that park facilities, such as pavilions and comfort stations, can take a real beating and be the unfortunate targets of graffiti and other types of vandalism.

    CPTED: An Architect's Viewpoint

    When Principal Consultant Matthew R. Dimmick attended the National Institute of Crime Prevention’s (NICP’s) courses on CPTED with his colleague Jason Mayfield, AIA, CPD, he watched their classmates gravitate to Jason for his viewpoint as the design expert in the group. Jason’s insights helped Matthew further recognize the value in CPTED principles and their application and how architects can provide value to physical security teams. He was so impressed with Jason’s insights that he sat down with him again to pick his brain.
