Cooley Park Master Plan [Kansas City, MO] : PLAID was retained by the KCMO Parks & Recreation Department to develop a master plan for Cooley Park. A plan was developed to promote a range of amenities and features for the existing 18 acres. An existing creek bisects the site with significant topographical change, but, the proposed plan maximizes opportunities for amenities. Expanded parking, expanded ability for sport, gathering areas, enlarged playgrounds, and a new trail system were all part of the development program. PLAID facilitated public meetings, established the character of the redeveloped park with imagery, and put together a preliminary estimate of costs.
