ILUS W. DAVIS PARK
KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI

SK Design Group served as the Civil Engineers during the masterplanning, design and construction of this beautiful urban park. A large number of blighted buildings were knocked down to make way for the park, thus encouraging the nearby construction of two new federal buildings and private investment in several other office buildings in the area. The park is named after the City’s mayor from 1963 to 1971. The park stretches two blocks north from Kansas City, Missouri City Hall to the federal court-house. A small fountain spouts water that flows into a large reflecting pool. Four granite pillars form an impressive memorial honoring city employees who died in public service. Hundreds of perennials and dozens of trees adorn the park. SK Design Group
was responsible for the preparation of plans and specifications for the demolition of existing dilapidated buildings, relocation of major utilities, site grading, site utilities, and perimeter
public improvements.
