Clark Condon led the design to re-purpose an existing under-utilized golf course into a multi-sport adventure park. Brock Park, set at the confluence of two bayous, was damaged by weather conditions in early 2016 limiting accessibility to the course and closed to the public. The City of Houston and the Houston Parks and Recreation Department decided to re-envision the open green space to serve more people in the area and the surrounding communities. Brock Adventure Park improved access to the 360-acre park, diversified the way people interact with the landscape, and reduced impact to the existing ecosystems. Due to the site’s proximity to Halls and Greens Bayous and its propensity to flood, special consideration was given during the planning and design phases to ensure any improvements did not have an adverse impact to the floodplain. The park includes unique activities that are adventurous in nature, but also suitable to the existing park terrain and vegetation. Program elements include disc golf, a playground, cross country, cyclo-course track, and more. Other improvements include renovations to the existing clubhouse and the restoration of a portion of the golf course to nine holes.
