The Town of Bloomfield, CT selected Fuss & O’Neill to develop a master plan for Farmington River Park, which currently occupies 78 acres in the northernmost portion of the Town.
Fuss & O’Neill developed a master plan to provide creative recommendations to enliven the park as a town-wide recreational asset supported by potential revenue generating initiatives and income. The Town aspired the park to become a vibrant passive park, proving recreational amenities such as: kayaking/canoeing, fishing, nature trails, educational areas, vistas and more. Our team tailored our approach to Bloomfield’s Master Plan to provide sustainable solutions, revenue generating strategies, accessible design amenities and public support all within context of the Town’s budget for the project.
Fuss & O’Neill met with Town staff and the Parks and Recreation Committee to determine the best option for the park. After exploring a number of ideas and concepts, this site design was the recommended option.
