Project Summary

Columbia was founded on the principle that community design is central to the social, physical, and mental health of the community. In recent years, Columbia’s planners and developers engaged Toole Design to help them undertake a significant transformation of its downtown and surrounding neighborhoods. Through a series of projects, we assisted developers with concept design, final design, and permitting of a major greenway trail through the heart of the community, providing a comfortable and low-stress connection to key destinations, including a community college, a hospital, parks and lakes, and a major concert venue.

Shared use path with wayfinding
Downtown Columbia Trail is a shared use path system connecting the Town Center and its surrounding neighborhoods.
