The Hands of Eli’s Park
The Eli’s Park Project is led by a dedicated team of landscape architects at Site Workshop who are committed to community-driven design. Clayton Beaudoin, Patrick Pirtle, and Vinita Sidhu have committed their time and hearts to the Eli’s Park Project. We would love to introduce you to the hands of Eli’s Park.
Meet our Landscape Architects
Clayton Beaudoin (pictured center) is a principal at Site Workshop with 15 years of experience engaging people in the storytelling, imagining, and creation of place. He believes, “the hidden power of inclusive design is in connecting diverse people, who then share inclusive messages throughout their communities. In our case, it’s even affected all of our other work.” We love Clayton for his willingness to be vulnerable, reflective, and compassionate in community outreach and for his relentless commitment to making sure everyone feels welcome in the processes and the places he helps create.
Patrick Pirtle (pictured right) joins Site Workshop with a broad range of experiences as a community organizer, urban planner, recycling coordinator, and rural natural resource planner. Patrick believes, “the key to leading an inclusive design process is a bit of humor, a whole lot of creativity and loads of love.” We love Patrick for his enthusiasm and excitement for transforming community members’ hopes and needs into tangible design solutions.
Vinita Sidhu (pictured far left) is a principal at Site Workshop with over two decades of experience designing and planning projects. She believes, “thoughtful design has the power to connect people to nature and to each other which ultimately leads to more caring and inclusive communities.” We love Vinita for her genuine belief that everybody has the right and ability to make meaningful contributions, and for her gift of making people feel accepted and important exactly as they are.
The talent and dedication this team has brought to the project are immeasurable. The Eli’s Park Project community is so grateful to have Clayton, Patrick, and Vinita who all live life with love, leadership, and passion. Thank you for your thoughtfulness and precision in creating an inclusive nature-based space for everyone to come play.
