BerryDunn Merges In Parks, Recreation and Open Space Consulting Firm

Portland, Maine-based IPA 100 firm BerryDunn (FY20 net revenue of $100.9 million) is merging parks, recreation and open space consulting firm GreenPlay of Louisville, Colo., into its parks, recreation, libraries practice. GreenPlay will take BerryDunn’s name.

With the deal, BerryDunn clients will gain access to an expanded bench of industry professionals and expertise in the space, including GreenPlay’s innovation teams focused on economic impact; resource allocation and cost recovery; diversity, equity and inclusion; and collegiate, recreation and wellness planning. GreenPlay clients, meanwhile, will have access to BerryDunn’s suite of financial, government and IT consulting as an integrated resource.

“GreenPlay’s entrepreneurial spirit, growth mindset and dedication to sustainable ideas are a perfect complement to our existing parks, recreation, libraries practice,” says BerryDunn CEO Sarah Belliveau. “By combining forces, we’re better positioned to lead large-scale projects for departments and agencies throughout the United States. Our clients in higher education, public safety, and health and community services recognize the benefits of parks and recreation offerings, ever more since the pandemic. It’s exciting to envision all the ways our combined team’s experience can be utilized to help communities thrive.”
