West Jordan Ron Wood Park
Landmark Design led a multi-disciplinary team of engineers and experts, West Jordan City staff and local residents in the development of a park master plan. The project included park programming, budget and use analysis, development of initial concepts, finalization of the park master plan, and preparation of construction documents for this neighborhood park. Phase One focuses on the development of ten acres of the 30-acre site with key park feature and attractions, including a large splash pad, large playground, pavilions, tennis and basketball courts, parking, picnic facilities, and a restroom (prefabricated). Future phases will complete the park, including 20 acres dedicated for sports fields and open play areas. Landmark Design managed the design team throughout the construction administration process. The project was completed in spring of 2014.
Ron Wood Park is named in honor of police officer Ron Wood who was killed in the line of duty in 2002. The playground within the park is dedicated to the memory of Sierra Newbold, a young girl who was abducted from her home in West Jordan and then killed in 2012.
