Sar-Ko-Par Trails Park is nestled between popular outdoor recreation spaces in Lenexa, KS. A new bridge was constructed in the park to improve lake water quality and park amenities.The bridge lighting plays a large role in enhancing the park environment while illuminating the well-used pathway. The lighting design goal was to illuminate the path while minimalizing lamp source and mounting. The bridge has become a beacon of sparkle by reflecting off the surrounding lake and making the bridge and park destination highly visible from the nearby public roadway.
