Greenway Planning and Design
Ekistics Design Studio is a key consultant to Hillsborough County in developing and upgrading of the Upper Tampa Bay Trail. Phase II is a 4 mile increment of a 16 mile master plan that will eventually extend this non-vehicular transportation facility from Tampa Bay to the Suncoast Trail.
Ekistics was responsible for trailhead and trailstop site design as well as signage and amenity features. The design for Channel Park Trailhead involved an ecological reconstruction of the canal bank and development of recreation park facilities. Ekistics was also retained to retrofit Phase I and Phase III to be compatible with Phase II design criteria and was involved in the Neighborhood Connections and Bridges project.
