MSLA’s 500 acres-park design is inspired by the verdant rolling hills and agricultural history of Nebraska with the desire to fuse art and nature. The park provides residents of Omaha with experiences ranging from the monumental to intimate. At the western edge of the site, a series of sculptural stormwater detention ponds linked by a trail system create an ecological backbone to the development. To the west, a public park complete with an outdoor amphitheater, children’s playground and water park aims to give the community a vibrant, urban social gathering space, one imbued with both sculpture and parkland. To the south, the 50-acre Applied Underwriter’s campus sits at the crown of a hill, wrapped by prairie and oak woodlands. The entire development is grounded in the desire to honor the inherent beauty of the mid-west landscape.
