Terrain was hired as a subconsultant to provide concept design and illustration services for a project located in Wheaton, Illinois. Terrain designed various park alternatives, streetscape improvements, infill opportunities and overall urban enhancement. Streetscape improvements included rain gardens, bulbouts, enhanced paving, widened sidewalks, on-street parking, cafe seating, art opportunities, parklets and overhead street lighting. Park concepts were prepared to coincide with streetscape improvements and to draw those recreating on the Illinois Prairie Path into downtown. Park design included an interactive water feature, pond hockey and ice skating rink, seating boulders, cafe grove, great lawn, a tiered amphitheater and a connection to a market-parking flex space.
