With a myriad of recreational experience including nature and interpretive centers, regional and neighborhood parks, walking trails, pavilions, comfort stations and playgrounds, Henderson Associates Architects has grown to understand both the needs of local communities as well as those within parks and recreation departments.  Planning, programming and designing the facilities, collaborating with community groups, and building consensus and ownership are all reasons that the communities we work with, remain committed HAA clients.




HAA takes into consideration special features that are quintessential to recreation management, such as vandalism resistance, canine amenities, and facilities that are child and family-oriented.



Attention to detail, expertise and care in plant and material selection such as indigenous plants, and close interaction with clients are hallmarks of our practice. We are committed to furthering sustainable design and have LEED accredited staff, certified by the United States Green Building Council.
