The 1,500-acre master plan of Inspirada in Henderson, NV was originally designed on New Urbanism guidelines, making it an entirely walkable environment. AndersonBaron designed the trails in the community to create a system of interconnected trails encouraging residents to walk, run, or bike to many of the destinations in the 300+ acres of parks, open spaces, and trails.

In the center of the master plan, atop a high vantage point off Bicentennial Parkway sits “The Outlook.” This unmanned educational kiosk serves as a visitor center and trailhead showcasing information on the future of Inspirada. Adorned with over 200 species of plant materials, The Overlook offers a beautiful example of how strategic plantings with a variety of colors and textures can offer a beautiful landscape year-round in this arid desert environment.

The Overlook offers panoramic views of the community and enhances the visitor’s experience with an integrated Inspirada App for smartphones and tablets. The app uses geopositioning, internal compass, augmented reality, 3-D parallax, dynamic image rendering, and animation to display fully realized parks, playgrounds, fitness facilities, signage, and neighborhoods in development. Once activated, the Inspirada App guides the users to see a panoramic representation of what the community will become – from parks and neighborhood locations down to the details of blooming landscape! This new augmented technology will help current and future residents explore Inspirada from endless vantage points.
