Scope of Services

Environmental Design Group developed the design, master plan and construction documents to create a place to celebrate the lake and its beauty. The design overcomes obstacles of access and lakefront visibility by creating stunning steps that wrap the northwest corner of the park. It connects a new upper promenade with the lower walkway which forms a one mile loop. Informal and formal seating is widely available throughout the structure. Rule 13 permitting and construction administration was also coordinated for the project.


The Solstice Steps increase the aesthetic value of the park by creating a gathering place for visitors. It serves as a local and regional destination for supporting resident attraction and retention, making it one of the region’s most iconic places to enjoy Lake Erie.
