Asakura Robinson Company was retained to provide design services for a 2010 CIAP Grant to Brazoria County to enhance wetlands and habitat with educational opportunities within their park system. The three parks selected for improvements are Quintana Beach Park, Resoft Park and Camp Mohawk. Quintana Beach County Park is a 51-acre beachfront park located on the upper Texas gulf coast with day-use amenities and overnight facilities. Area natural attractions include bird watching, fishing, swimming, surfing, beach-combing, and shelling. ARC was commissioned to add bioswales, wetlands and natural habitat areas to complement the park’s existing amenities. The park, which includes many historic relics, is an important site for early Texas history. Resoft Park is an existing soccer field complex with a large bird habitat lake. ARC plans increase the lake size with wetland shelves and adds a nature education area for pre-school children. Camp Mohawk is an existing camping area with dormitories, primitive camping, wonderful oxbow lakes and Chocolate Bayou. ARC plans include an observation deck at the oxbow, lookout areas with interpretive signage along Chocolate Bayou and a canoe launch area.
