Oviedo Center Lake Park

 
 

Oviedo, Florida

Oviedo on the Park is a mixed-use project being developed to revitalize an existing Florida small town which has been surrounded by Central Florida growth. The project, currently under construction, hosts this new central park as the showpiece of a new town center featuring residential and retail venues. Dix.Hite was responsible for the land planning, project visioning, branding, signing, hardscape and landscape architectural design for the park as well as thestreetscape infrastructure, multi-family and townhome community elements.

Working in conjunction with the City of Oviedo and Projects for Public Spaces, Dix.Hite facilitated public workshops, presentations, placemaking seminars and completed the conceptual design for the Center Lake Park. The proposed six acre park's amenities includes a community amphitheater and cultural center, multi-purpose lawn area, wetland inspired children's play area, family game lawn, dog park, Veteran's Tribute, bike/walking paths, small performance pavilion, an interactive water feature area and lakefront promenade each infused with design details of wetland character flora and fauna.  The park is bordered to the north by a large wetland system that reaches north to the historic downtown quarter. We used the idea of connectivity and context to create the park's identity and to build an awareness and appreciation for the natural systems. Plant material selections integrate native and drought tolerant species.
