Springdale Park Elementary Wins Award

Breedlove Land Planning is pleased to announce that Springdale Park Elementary School recently received an Award of Excellence from the Atlanta Urban Design Commission.   As one of the first Atlanta Public Schools to attempt LEED Silver certification, Springdale Park Elementary School blends environmental and cultural elements in one cohesive design.  The school is located in the Druid Hills neighborhood of Atlanta and lies adjacent to Springdale Park, originally designed by Fredrick Law Olmsted, the “Father” of the profession of Landscape Architecture.  Breedlove Land Planning provided site design consultant services to Perkins+Will Architects and designed a program that includes infiltration based stormwater management, a native and adapted plant palette that is historically appropriate to the neighborhood and the preservation of hundreds of inches of mature oak trees.
