See what Savannah Gardens offers
All of the public infrastructure at Savannah Gardens is new. This means new pavement, new sidewalks, new water lines, new sewer lines, new storm sewer lines, and new parks. Savannah Gardens is also served by new underground electric and cable lines.The very pedestrian and bicycle friendly Savannah Gardens has six parks, squares, and piazzas covering 5 acres.
The parks, squares, and piazzas include three fenced playgrounds, two gazebos with picnic tables, drinking fountains, wide sidewalks, bike lanes, and plenty of mature and newly planted trees.The brick piazza crosses Pennsylvania Avenue and is the “town center” of Savannah Gardens.
The piazza has a state of the art spray fountain for kids to splash in while parents sit nearby visiting and sipping a drink, eating ice cream, eating a sandwich, or reading a magazine from one of the shops the developer has planned for the piazza.Pedestrian Safety a PriorityNew Urbanism design principals make Savannah Gardens a safe and friendly place for pedestrians to move about.
These features include wide and ample sidewalks; plenty of signage; and traffic calming street designs that use lane widths and pavement materials to help slow traffic. Brick and raised crosswalks emphasize pedestrian movement.The most notable of these crosswalks is located on Pennsylvania Avenue where the piazza crosses from east to west. Here, a large raised brick tabletop design, that includes cobblestones at its north and south boarder, serves to slow traffic and make drivers aware that they are to take a back seat to pedestrians.
So, too, do high tech flashing yellow lights in the pavement and on signs that automatically light up and blink as pedestrians enter this crosswalk.This area also provides pull off lanes on either side of the street for buses and cars dropping people off or picking them up from the piazza. Savannah Gardens is well lit with plenty of new high intensity street lights and, LED lighting through the major parks and piazza. Front porches and building designs at Savannah Gardens also make it easy for folks to keep their eye on life in the community.
