Bowman Completes Water Park at National Landing, VA, Celebrates Grand Opening

October 16, 2023

Bowman is proud to announce the successful completion of Water Park at National Landing. The company was contracted by JBG SMITH in 2020 to provide civil engineering, survey and limited landscape architecture services for the improvement project.

Located in the heart of Crystal City, Arlington, VA, the Water Park at National Landing stands as a testament to the fusion of natural landscape and modern amenities. The refreshed space now includes an updated water feature, a bar area and 10 food pavilions, all surrounded by native trees and vegetation. Additionally, the improvements provide visitors with convenient and seamless access to the Virginia Railway Express and Crystal City Connector, crucial transportation links for residents.

“Bowman takes great pride in its role in assisting JBG SMITH in transforming this park into a destination for Crystal City,” said Scott Delgado, EVP, Washington DC metro area regional manager at Bowman. “We drew upon our regional knowledge and technical expertise to navigate complexities and deliver a project that blends with the neighborhood’s vision. Seeing the project in its completed state is extremely gratifying for everyone involved.”

To mitigate the increase in impervious areas and ensure responsible water management, Bowman incorporated green infrastructure into the landscape design. Close collaboration with the design team enabled the company to expertly merge the project’s functional elements with a vision that resonates with the community. Additionally, Bowman worked in conjunction with Arlington County to preserve several native trees and incorporate them into the site’s overall design.

As the Water Park begins welcoming visitors, Bowman extends a warm congratulations to JBG SMITH and other project partners for delivering an innovative and environmentally conscious addition to Crystal City

The company has also provided its expertise for nearby projects, including Central District Retail, 1900 Crystal Drive and Surreal (Dining in the Park).
