Lake Atalanta is an ecological gem nestled into the urban fabric of Rogers, AR. Surrounded by some of Rogers’ oldest city parks, the destination was in need of redevelopment. EDG master planned a new park and trails system that includes a concrete boardwalk, approximately two miles of concrete trail, a new natural play area and splash zone, restroom facilities, multiple pavilions, way-finding kiosks, a kayak hut, and permeable pavement parking. Care was taken to enhance the already rich flora and fauna present in the park through plant selection, sensitive grading and earth moving, site material selection, and vehicular restriction.  The goal for revitalization of this treasured city park is to enhance both the ecological and economical systems for the City of Rogers.
