Franklinton, LA

As the prime consultant on this project, we developed a master plan for Bogue Chitto State Park, in Washington Parish, LA. The 1,800-acre park is home to a variety of wildlife and vegetation. We conducted several public meetings, including a three-day on-site design charrette with the community and elected officials. Additionally, our team prepared and presented extensive programming and analysis of the site’s unique opportunities and limitations to the public through a series of workshops. The community's input informed the design concepts and the final master plan. Features of the park include an extensive trail system, overnight cabins, day use area, RV area, group camping facility, gorge interpretive area, and visitor center. Activities include canoeing, fishing, hiking, birding, biking, and picnicking.
