Ann Jackson has practiced landscape design in Vancouver and the Okanagan since 2006 in both private and regional government settings. Following undergraduate studies in geography and fine art, Ann completed her Master of Landscape Architecture degree at UBC. She is inspired by a range of natural and constructed landscapes, and is influenced by both her childhood on an Okanagan orchard and her travels in North and South America. Her professional interests include sustainable infrastructure, public space, ecological restoration, and agricultural landscapes. She has extensive experience in bringing projects from conceptual design through construction documentation and contract administration.
Ann’s recent work includes the Grouse Grind Trail Closure Systems Study, as well as the RDCO Regional Parks Design Guidelines, a comprehensive document for planners, consultants and contractors planning and constructing new and retrofit projects within RDCO parks. She was also the design lead for the City of Enderby Cliff Avenue Streetscape Revitalization, the construction of which was completed in 2017. Since 2013, Ann has owned and operated Happy Valley Organics, an organic peach orchard in Summerland, BC.
