Wall Springs Park Coast Addition project wins APWA West Coast Branch Project of the Year

Cardno is proud to announce that the Wall Springs Park project was recently recognized as the APWA West Coast Branch Project of the Year - Historical Restoration/Preservation.

Cardno has partnered with Pinellas County to preserve Florida’s traditional working waterfronts and protect natural resources. Because of its location on the Gulf of Mexico and its varied topography, the Wall Springs Park Project encompasses a wide variety of native habitats and associated plant and animal life. Cardno worked closely with the Southwest Florida Water Management District (SWFWMD) to delineate wetlands, providing the appropriate buffer for trails and buildings.

In addition, eleven known prehistoric archaeological sites exist within the grounds of the expanded park. Cardno completed a cultural assessment survey and provided roadway design and plans; sidewalk design and plans; bid-phase services; and construction support.

“Cardno has worked with Pinellas County for over 15 years to develop the vision for the expansion of the existing Wall Springs Park from 84 acres to 209. We’re excited to be part of this project that creates something special for the residents of Pinellas County,” said Doug Stoker, Vice President, Transportation Area Manager.

The APWA Florida Chapter – West Coast Branch Awards Program was established to recognize outstanding individuals and groups, representing the best in the public works profession, and mirrors the program set forth by the national APWA.
