GOOD GROUND PARK
Location: South Hampton, New York
Client: Town of South Hampton, NY
Good Ground Park is a new public park on 38 acres of forested land in the heart of the Hampton Bays community of Southampton, NY. The goal of the project was to serve the recreational needs of the Town and its residents, establish linkages to the village business district, enhance the quality of life, and reinforce the image and identity of the Hampton Bays Community. A central feature of the new park is an amphitheater, which was carved into a natural bowl within the woodland that will host community events such as concerts, children's performances, and theater. The new streetscape along the southern border is designed to incencitize commercial growth and revitalization of the Hampton Bays Village business district. Future phases of the park will also include a nature-inspired playground, park green, nature trails with overlooks, and comfort station.
