John Saunders Memorial Park | Valdosta, Georgia
IPG worked with the City of Valdosta to completely redesign an existing city park to include upgrades, new amenities, and handicapped accessibility. Saunders Memorial Park is an ideal space for large gatherings as it houses 6 covered picnic shelters that are available for rent. The largest one holds up to 150 people. Every shelter features electricity and a designated grill. A paved walking nature trail leads from the shelters through a beautiful shaded wooded area. The park also includes two regulation-sized outdoor basketball courts, a splash pad, a playground, and an amphitheater complete with electricity and stage lights that can seat hundreds of people.
