One of the greatest attractions to both families and businesses is the quality of a community’s parks, recreation, and open space systems. Families and corporations alike judge a community by its investment, use, maintenance, and livability of its natural and active park systems, trails, and recreation programs. The health and wellness of a community is directly benefited by its ability to plan and design a comprehensive system of park and recreational opportunities for its existing and future residents.

Matrix has proven success in providing planning and design services for national park areas, state and regional park systems, and communities across the United States.
