Grove of Honor Park Plaza
In the summer of 2017, we finished a very interesting project for the City of Mesquite and the Mesquite Rotary Club. The project is nestled within Debusk Park, a 42.5-acre park featuring a 1.44-mile walking/running trail, 2 playgrounds, a baseball field, 2 large pavilions with 18 picnic tables, and ample open space.
Together with the Mesquite Rotary Club, we completed an area of reflection to honor exemplary members of the Rotary Club featuring three natural stone vertical elements with bronze commemorative plaques, park benches and a large “Rotary International” logo in the center of the area.
The sidewalks that lead into the area are made of stamped and stained concrete using a brick pattern and Desert Tan stain. These sidewalks lead visitors to the benches. The next finish we completed is a Sandscape Refined in a Sand color and light exposure. This runs underneath the 3 stone vertical elements and a quarter of the way around the large “Rotary International” logo in the middle of the project. The remaining ¾ of the area directly bordering the logo is Sandscape Refined with Painted Desert color. Finally, the large “Rotary International” logo was created by sandblasting and staining in black the Rotary symbol, set against a Sandscape Refined background with a Brass color hardener. The entire area is surrounded by a 6” border in a Sand color hardener with a broom finish.
The General Contractor with whom we worked on this project was Joe Nichols of Joe Nichols Construction, Inc. The project is located at 1625 Gross Road, Mesquite, TX. For more information on the park itself, visit the City of Mesquite’s website.
