Don Biddle Community Park / Grand Opening

Don Biddle Community Park  is now open for all (as of Sept. 24, 2022)! During the grand opening festivities, it was quite a sight to see, as people enjoyed every inch of the park, and as laughter and excitement filled the playgrounds and picnic areas. City of Dublin stakeholders and Biddle Family spoke words from the heart, highlighting the importance of public parks. Carducci Associates is proud to be a part of such an amazing team that brings great parks to all. Don Biddle Community Park ties together West and East Dublin, and a vision to link history with innovation inspired the design. When one takes a stroll on the D-loop, every corner of the great lawn, community garden, sports courts, parent paddock, adventure playground and art sculpture installations (by Steven Whyte) present opportunities for memorable experiences. We hope that Don Biddle himself would have been delighted to see what his hard work helped produce.

GREENWOOD LANDING

“Phillipsdale Landing has witnessed industrial developments along Seekonk River over centuries since 1860, which has been drastically shaped to a post-industrial waterfront wasteland. Though being totally dismantled, what these factories left are contaminated soil and topography shaped by industrial activities, leaving the land barren through decades while slowly getting into succession with the reoccupation of pioneer plants. Despite being a wild urban void, it is located at a crucial ecological node for both anadromous fishes and migratory birds. The question for us is how to make the voids vibrant again by bringing out its potential.

We conceive a possible shift from extractive human-centric productivity to sustainable natural resources production, which aims for interrelating ecological restoration, economic anchoring, and activity programing. Through healing the ground, making profits from green, and bringing back life, This site-in-transition is supposed to adapt to future new systems, which will reunite fauna, flora and people and lead to a vibrant future.”
