Campbell Park Master Plan

Working on a tight schedule with a lean budget, Mackenzie created the Campbell Park Master plan for the City of St. Helens. The master plan includes reconfigured tennis and basketball courts, and a nature trail through a stormwater meadow. Mackenzie’s ability to listen carefully, then deliver the plan with a degree of intentional independence, took a burden off the City staff, and allowed them to focus on other priorities. Ultimately, the master plan greatly contributed to the City successfully obtaining grant money for improving the park.Learn more

Clackamette Park Master Plan

Clackamette Park, one of Oregon City’s largest parks, is located at the confluence of the Willamette and Clackamas Rivers. These two iconic rivers provide both the park’s allure and serious challenges to its year-round use. Mackenzie’s master plan addresses the park’s resiliency while improving pedestrian and bike connectivity. Much of the park becomes unusable in the wet period of the year because of river swells and storms. The park includes an RV park which is closed every winter, resulting in a loss of revenue to the city. The design team gathered input from park maintenance staff, who...Learn more

Millard Park Master Plan

Building on a history of successful collaboration, the City of St. Helens reached out to Mackenzie for the master planning of a park on 20 acres of vacant land. Our integrated team worked quickly and efficiently with a lean budget to create a vision of a multi-generational park with amenities for everyone in the community, from exercise enthusiasts to bird watchers. As the city determined the best use for the site, the master plan was used as a tool to communicate the potential value of the property as park. The plan outlined the park boundary and defined its relationship to adjacent,...Learn more

Woodmont Natural Park

Woodmont Natural Park is designed to enhance and restore its existing ecosystems and strengthen the community’s connection to the natural environment. During the master plan process, Mackenzie led an extensive public outreach program that included online surveys, design workshops, and presentations. These efforts centered on listening to the community and gathering feedback to inform the park features. Mackenzie also engaged closely with advisory committees and city commissioners to gain approvals. A variety of distinct areas were identified in the planning process: flexible open space, oak...Learn more

B Street Trail

This 3/4-mile trail is a critical link in Forest Grove’s citywide trail system, providing a connection between downtown and the regional multi-use trail that skirts the city, which will eventually join the Portland metro area to Haag Lake and beyond. Mackenzie’s landscape architecture group served as the prime consultant in the planning, design, documentation, and construction observation of the project, with in-house civil and structural engineering and planning assisting in the effort. Pacific Habitat Services provided natural resource consulting, including wetland delineation, joint permit...Learn more

Oregon State University Student Legacy Park

Funded entirely by student referendum, Student Legacy Park provides a much loved intramural athletic facility and campus gathering area in the core of the Oregon State University campus. The final design incorporates a wide matrix of athletic uses with an active streetscape and central activity plaza. Designers developed a linear park along Intramural Way, and Mackenzie’s engineers coordinated with the City of Corvallis and university planning staff to design streetscape improvements along 26th Street, 30th Street, and Intramural Way. The design features landscaped and hardscaped entry nodes...Learn more
