Margaret Ingle Park
At Margaret Ingle Park, RULD worked with Cullman Parks and Recreation on the renovation of an existing 6-acre park to create an inclusive park and playground. Components of the park include accessible playground structures throughout the park; a butterfly garden; a splash pad; and a small amphitheater and stage.
Art Park, formerly known as City Park or Main Avenue Park, is the city of Cullman's oldest park. The renovation, transforming the space into a public showcase for sculptures and murals by local artists, has since converted the park into a community focal point for the surrounding neighborhoods. This erstwhile eyesore is now one of the most popular places in the whole city; it’s impossible to visit this park and have the place to yourself. Families with children enjoy the swings, slides, and play equipment, or gather for movie nights; young adults enjoy throwing frisbees across the lawns.
This four-acre park serves as a water retention and water quality area for the Pinnacle Development, as well as a regional sediment control lake. The pond is stocked with fish. It is equipped with a 40’ high waterfall, fountain, and multiple bubblers for aeration and oxygenation systems, which creates a healthy fish habitat.
Renta Urban Land Design provided master planning, site planning, landscape architecture, grading, hardscape design, irrigation design, and ADA accessibility for Pinnacle Park. The park features an accessible walkway, a wooden fishing pier, benches, a waterfall, a fountain and other amenities.
Hoover East Inclusive Playground
Hoover East Inclusive Playground sits next to the Miracle League Field at Hoover Sports Park East. It is the first Me2 certified inclusive playground in the state of Alabama. Renta Urban Land Design worked with the City of Hoover, Hoover Parks and Recreation Foundation, and Signature Homes to bring the project to life.
