Kirkland Park Lane
This project demonstrates the leadership of Osborn Consulting landscape architects to transform our cities into more sustainable and equitable places to live. The primary goal of the project was to reinvent Park Lane as a place for the community to gather, reclaiming it for pedestrians regardless of ability. Park Lane’s whimsical features create a beautiful environment where people of all ages and abilities can connect over food, art, and spontaneous conversation.

Landscape Architecture and Urban Design
Through an extensive public outreach campaign, a series of goals emerged for the project. Two pop-up, on-street design charrettes were held, where passersby were asked what they liked and disliked about the street, followed by coordinated one-on-one meetings with each business, as well as two open workshops with the public and city council members.
