The Importance of Public Art in Our Parks

Incorporating art into public parks is a cultural aesthetic that we love taking advantage of. It’s not always fitting to every park, but in neighborhoods with rich history and culture, we find that a public display of art is like the cherry on top.

Incorporating art into your parks has many benefits. Not only can it give a chance for the local artists in your community to thrive and show off their talent, but it can also add gorgeous and colorful accents to the overall design as well as provide knowledge and education to visitors from all over. It can be a true and meaningful representation for what you want your community to mean to others.

La Quinta Roundabout

Public art can be fashioned of bronze, brick, wood, steel, or fabric; it can be a mural, a sculpture, a park bench or a banner. Talk to DVD today about how an art installation in your park and community centers can become thought-provoking cultural landmarks and provide a sense of community & cohesion.

DVD Stands Behind Sustainability

DVD is committed to creating public landscapes that create a community while remaining unique, beautiful, and importantly: sustainable.

Our affiliation with LEED, or the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, allows us to identify and quantify the sustainability of our designs. To DVD, Sustainable Public Landscapes means moving forward in the world of design landscape by responding to the pressing environmental land and cultural challenges and initiatives. These challenges and initiatives include an array of little changes that make a big difference in the long run. Low water use, low maintenance native plantings, and landscapes that are designed to be in balance with the local climate and environment while requiring minimal resource inputs are just a few examples of the sustainable efforts DVD puts into their projects in order to meet current trends and requirements.
