Parks & Streetscapes
A visitor’s perception of a place is heavily determined by the character, quality, and legibility of its parks, greenway corridors, and streetscapes. Offshoots specilizes in creating new park openspaces and Complete Streets projects for municipalities and agencies that layer community vision with unique pogramming and productive, green infrastructure systems. Offshoots is a certified WBE and DBE and MassDOT pre-approved landscape architecture firm. We are familiar with public construction procurement laws, regulation, policies and design standards.
Offshoots specializes in facilitating community meetings that ensure all stakeholders are heard and residents, business owners and government officials take ownership in the project. Our success in these communities is attributed to our ability to focus on identity and transform community desires into a collective sense of place beginning with an analysis of the community that draws on historical characteristics and programming opportunities.
Offshoots is intimately familiar with the requirements of the American Disabilities Act as evidenced in our successful completion of many built municipal projects and seeks to enable safe access for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders of all ages and abilities.
