  Radford Park sits adjacent to Fort Bliss at the Pershing Street entrance with stunning westerly views of the mountains. With just about four acres, the design intent was to provide a signature community park with both active and passive recreation, while respecting the property's original inhabitants; Gambel quail and the common Mourning dove.


  The park today with just the lower portion completed is composed of a main courtyard with age specific playground areas, a beautiful rock wall amphitheater, a basketball court, a sand volleyball area, and native trails that will one day lead into the upper portion of the Park.


  To make sure the native El Paso species were welcomed again, the Park was designed to allow for protected areas with its original landscape to mesh with the newly introduced low water use plant material. Also in an effort to attract a variety of users, exercise equipment, distance markers, and accessible areas were incorporated to promote health within the community. In the near future we hope to see the upper portion completed with a scenic courtyard and the same attention to detail that creates a welcoming community park.


  Sites Southwest is the Landscape Architect of Record for this project. David A. Parra led the project design phases during his tenure there.
