Prairie Village, KS
Meadowbrook Park, formerly a 136-acre golf and country club facility, is re-envisioned in a plan that retains 84-acres of the original site as a public park and focuses on existing centrally-located ponds. Two new residential neighborhoods flank the ponds with a mix of single family homes, attached homes, luxury apartments, and a senior living complex. An inn with restaurant and ancillary commercial spaces is centrally-located in a garden alongside the northernmost pond. The neighborhood form and building locations preserve mature trees and blend with the park through a formal frontage, green courtyard connections, and neighborhood parklettes that act as a continuation of the park experience.
