Famous Landscape Architect – Simonds-Hammock Dunes
This area was designed by the famous visionary Landacape Architect, Planner, Educator and Environmentalist John Ormsbee Simonds.
You can see many of his famous projects in the ‘ Exhibit Gallery, Second Floor Library at the Geroge A. Smathers Libraries at the University of Florida.
“…John Simonds, FASLA, was on of the most influential modernist landscape architects in the United States, and was respected internationally as well. If, when looking at this work, it seems mainstream, that ‘s because now it is. But it was cutting edge when he first did it. Clustered housing to preserve open space? Planned Unit Developments? He pioneered PUDs. He was the planner of record for over 80 planned communities and 4 new towns, including Florida’s Miami Lakes and Pelican Bay. His work in comprehensive planning grew from projects in Florida – a state that was “going to pot in front of your eles”. Its ruined landscapes and fragile beauty were the impetus for a new kind of planning based on ecology and human needs. In addition to professional projects, he served on numberous committees and task forces and was a long term advisor to one of his first Florida clients – Bob Graham. He helped forge laws and programs that, according to him, took Florida from ruin to protection in 15 years. While he may have been optimistic when he said that in 1985, one does not hav to wonder what Florida would be like if he had not come here…”

If the newer Palm Coasters want to read more just google George A. Smathers Library, Simonds, University of Florida.
Since Simonds was involved directly with ‘ The Palm Coast Project ‘ from about 1975ish , this area most probably would be eligible for a Historic Heritage MARKER – wouldn’t that look great, compliment, and enhance the entrance by the ‘ Clock Tower ‘ !
