Special emphasis was placed on the urban design and architectural interface to establish the image and character of the parks and open space system. AECOM provided a plan that closely integrated the urban environment with the public realm through recreational areas and a land use pattern responsive to the lake.

Plan components include a large ceremonial plaza and mixed-use development adjacent to the central business district and a linear waterfront promenade on the west shore. The south shore features a historic fishing pier, a neighborhood shopping district around a manmade cove, and a Sustainability Education Center with wetland gardens. A series of active neighborhood parks, an arts and entertainment district, an aquarium, outdoor concert pavilion, and display gardens make up the east shore. The north shore is composed of a waterfront park, wetlands, a signature bridge, and a man-made island for resort and water recreation uses.
