Design and Construction The Design and Construction team, a multifaceted entity within the Columbus Recreation and Parks Department (CRPD), is located in the Jerry Hammond Center at 1111 E. Broad Street. This team includes a diverse group of professionals, with backgrounds in landscape architecture, planning, natural resources, and construction, structural and civil engineering. The section services the public in future planning, design, construction supervision and management, property acquisition and management, and general and technical information for all of the City’s parks and recreational facilities. More information about conducting business with CRPD can be found below.

Contract Bids CRPD uses a competitive bidding process to procure the services of general contractors, design professionals and engineers, to help develop and rebuild our future projects. Bids can be seen on the City of Columbus Vendor Services Website.

Design Guidelines CRPD's Design Guidelines provide a summary of general information, design requirements, standard drawings, supplemental specifications and forms for design consultants, developers, other City departments and additional groups involved in the design of CRPD facilities. Understanding CRPD Design Guidelines will promote successful project coordination and completion for all stakeholders involved. COMING SOON.

Non-Park Use Policy (NPUP) Information CRPD’s NPUP policy limits private use and any development of parks and parkland that would interfere with recreational opportunities. NPUP Policy can be found here.
