Warren County On-Call
LPDA developed a Parks, Recreation, and Open Space Master Plan for Warren County, Virginia. The plan developed a clear path for future development of county parks. The study looked at existing and proposed facilities and recommended potential improvements as well as new parks strategically located to facilitate to better accommodate a growing population in the county.
Through several on-call contracts, LPDA has worked with the county to implement the plan, preparing master plans, design drawings and construction documents for each improvement totaling 30 individual projects thus far. Projects have included park master planning and construction, greenway and trail planning and construction, playgrounds, athletic field complexes, dog parks, kiss and rides, interpretive areas, canoe and boat launches, splash pads and memorials.
