Batterson Park Master Plan
The Batterson Park Master Plan is an ambitious and comprehensive project aimed at optimizing the use and potential of the vast 266-acre area surrounding Batterson Park Pond. Encompassing a diverse landscape of natural beauty, recreational spaces, and a stunning 140-acre man-made pond, this project seeks to create a holistic and sustainable environment for the community.
The design team looked to develop state-of-the-art recreational facilities such as walking trails, bike paths, and picnic areas while integrating modern amenities like a playground, restrooms, concessions, and open spaces to cater to a wide range of recreational interests.
Preserve Natural Habitat:
- Implement eco-friendly practices to preserve and enhance the natural habitat surrounding the pond.
- Establish wildlife corridors and conservation zones to protect local flora and fauna.
- Design and implement a waterfront development plan to maximize the utilization of the 140-acre man-made pond.
- Introduce water-based activities such as kayaking, boating, and fishing, ensuring sustainable practices.
