Lakefront Park Glencoe

Glencoe, IL
Historic Lakefront Park sits on a high bluff overlooking Glencoe Beach. It is connected to the beach by a roadway and stone staircase.
Altamanu worked with the Board of Commissioners, staff of the Glencoe Park District and the public to develop a master plan for the park.

Altamanu designed a series of new entry plazas, playgrounds, pathways, and proposed native planting and interpretive signage.
The plan also addresses the stability of the bluff, the access road, stairway to the beach and the protection of site's historical buildings (the Halfwat House and Safran Beach House).

Glencoe Park District then engaged Altamanu to assist in the restoration of the historic stone clad overlook and the Halfway House.
