Thomas Rengstorf Associates developed a park and landscape architectural design for 28 residential view lots at Fairweather Cove Estates. The site features trails, a children's play area, swimming beach, sport courts, boat moorage, private docks, and barbeque areas. TRA addressed unique site challenges including the design of tennis and basketball courts within a power line easement, and dredging the lake to create a sandy swimming beach. Mature stands of Douglas Fir were retained along the lakefront to frame views of Mt. Rainier, and to provide a pleasant setting for trails. At the swimming beach and bath house, TRA created curved concrete seatwalls for informal seating, and barbeque areas along the promenade for small gatherings. Native plantings and perennials add color and texture to the community landscape.
