We know you live, breathe and dream recreation. 

So do we. 

Our holistic approach to site design incorporates educational, social and physical elements, 
resulting in parks and 
play environments 
that engage and challenge the entire family. 
Our collective mission is to get people outside to have fun, socialize, exercise, learn, and gain new experiences. Great spaces begin as ideas...as vision. Through thoughtful planning and consensus building, an idea becomes reality and a place is created. The Recreation Studio at Hitchcock Design Group will help you advance your mission through an imaginative, collaborative, respectful and disciplined process that results in Creating Better Places® to Play.
