Linden Square at Gladstone Village Center

Gladstone, Missouri


A dynamic multi-use park adjacent to City Hall that serves as a catalyst for development aimed at creating a downtown district in this first-ring suburban community


In collaboration with Confluence landscape architects, City of Gladstone officials and private developers, SFS developed and explored options for creating a community gathering space anchored by commercial development. Amenities in this include an amphitheater, a pavilion that serves as a stage, an open lawn space that converts to a synthetic ice rink, pedestrian plazas, and a parking lot that can be utilized as a Community Farmer’s Market. Linden Square has played a key role in the more than $100 million in private development that has occurred in Gladstone’s new downtown since Linden Square was developed.
