S&ME provided landscape architecture and transportation planning services for Parkside, a 317-unit flagship community for Meritage Homes in the Dr. Phillips area of Orlando. The community is highly amenitized and well connected with sidewalks and trails. The trails connect residents to a lakefront county park and to neighborhood schools. Within Parkside, there are three neighborhood parks and a centrally located community center. The Mediterranean-style club is located at the terminus of the community’s entry drive and features a modified roundabout as its foreground. The roundabout, with a raised fountain, was engineered to meet the requirements of County Fire and Rescue with mountable pavement in the center and splitter islands while maintaining the traffic-calming character of a narrower travel lane width.
