Amanda Street Park at East Altamonte

Altamonte Springs, FL

VHB was engaged by the future-focused City of Altamonte Springs to design a new park and thoroughfare with an emphasis on sustainability and transit-oriented design (TOD). The Park at East Altamonte on Amanda Street features sustainable landscaping and amenities that enhance neighborhood connectivity to an existing SunRail commuter station, as well as to future enhancements such as a planned multimodal flex path with electric autonomous shuttle stops.

The park has transit-oriented features that benefit the local community, a dedicated space for food trucks and events, and a view of adjacent wetlands, as well as two pavilion structures. VHB's integrated team collaborated with the city to seamlessly integrate pedestrian safety, environmental sustainability, and micro-mobility options into the design, and provided engineering, floodplain drainage, and utilities guidance for a new half-mile section of Amanda Street.

People walk on a park sidewalk past tents and food trucks. People gather inside a red-roofed picnic pavilion near landscaped plantings and vegetation. A brick-paved pedestrian crossing located within a park.
