Recreational Development

Communities are becoming more and more cognizant of the health, social and environmental benefits associated with public facilities such as athletic complexes, community parks, playgrounds, residential common areas, historic sites, greenways and multi-use trails. Offering outstanding recreational facilities helps to improve quality of life, to connect people to their community, and to enhance property values and marketability so people and businesses in the area prosper.

TWM is passionate about using our engineering skills to help build appealing, accessible, and cost-effective recreational spaces local communities can be proud of. Whether you are building a new recreational facility, or rehabilitating an aging facility, TWM can provide the engineering and land surveying services required to turn your vision into a reality.

Revitalization of Established Parks and Transformation of Underutilized Properties

Opportunities abound for positive change. Former industrial properties lying undeveloped, parks that have historically flooded, and areas with histories of challenging environmental conditions are just a few examples of underutilized sites. For example, TWM is currently partnering with a client to revitalize the Pop Myles Swimming Complex, also known as the East St. Louis Aquatic Center. When completed, this complex will offer state-of-the-art aquatic activities and competitive swimming facilities that will give a second life to this long abandoned complex.

Suite of Services

Over the last 70+ years, TWM is proud to have partnered with private developers, municipalities, park districts, and other state agencies to renovate recreational facilities across the states of Illinois and Missouri. An important component to each project has been connecting people of all ages to the communities where they live, work and play. Historically, revamping these spaces has sparked positive changes in surrounding neighborhoods, which attracted new residents and businesses to these communities.
