Opportunity

Town Creek Park in Pickens is an existing 95 acre city park that includes the Pickens Recreation Center. The park property has been underutilized for many years until we saw several opportunities for improved recreational offerings within the undeveloped acreage.

Solution

Following completion of a trail master plan by Ride Garden, two grants were pursued and awarded to the city totaling $500,000 in funding for initial improvements. With five planned phases total costs were projected at over $2 million dollars.

Darrohn Engineering served as lead consultant for the design and construction oversight of the first two of five phases with estimated project costs of $950,000. The facility includes a 3,600-ft multi-use greenway, several thousand feet of single track for mountain bikers, a 4,000-ft wooden/earthen Flowcoaster™ riding track, pump track, and other cutting-edge, customized bike features.

What People Are Saying

I would recommend John for any project large or small, his breath of experience shows as he has helped guide me through this process.

I for one, appreciate the hard work you did for the club on our bike lane projects and I’m proud that they are expanding and growing all the time.  I think you were one of the early pioneers on bike lanes in the community with some others. I appreciate your behind-the-scenes efforts. Thanks.
