Town Hall Park

The first priority from Daleville's downtown revitalization plan was the re-imagining of Town Hall Park into an attractive, community anchor that would energize the local economy and attract future businesses and residents.

We led a team of multi-disciplinary consultants to assist the Daleville community in completing a revitalization strategy for their downtown. The goal was to create a multi-purpose, walkable community with amenities attractive to new investment, development, and residents. The downtown plan for a 20-acre area focused on creating amenity infrastructure and integrating downtown housing and retail spaces with an improved town park. We also looked at providing a new multi-modal trail and a reconstructed civic town center.

A dynamic play area was designed to naturally fold into the existing topographical slopes, while the terraced playscape boasts one of the state’s largest splashpads. Elevated catwalks connect to a lower-level playground. The new splash pad and playscape draws young families, and the park’s walking paths, swaths of greenspace, and meandering stream attracts visitors of all ages.

Since its opening, Town Hall Park has been activated by year-round community programming which includes spring, summer, and winter festivals, a regular concert series and outdoor movies on the lawn. The new picnic shelter is regularly rented for weddings, reunions, and birthday parties.

The park has become a regional attraction for surrounding communities and counties, garnering state-wide interest. Since the first 3 years of the park's opening, the community has seen over $20 million in private investment, including construction of new mixed-income housing, three new businesses, three business expansions and the attraction of new residents. The community is actively pursuing other priorities of the downtown master plan including the development of a trail system and construction of new municipal facilities in the historic commercial core.
