In 2012 the City of Weston requested that CGA prepare several design options for expansion of the parking area at Emerald Estates Park along with other enhancements. These improvements were in response to the popularity of two existing picnic shelters and the lack of parking for them, as well as a lack of lighting in the park at night. In addition, all of the walkways were replaced, new seating areas were created, and new fitness equipment was provided. CGA provided site design, civil engineering, electrical engineering, landscape and irrigation design, and construction administration services for the project. There were several trees and palms on the site, which were worthy of preservation or relocation. The landscape architecture team worked closely with the civil engineers to site the new parking areas and drainage facilities in such a way so as to preserve as many trees as possible. The resulting effect is that the new improvements to the park look as if they have been there for many years. Furthermore, the new seating and fitness station areas afford many more views to the surrounding lake than previously existed. This has greatly enhanced the user experience of all of the visitors to the park.
