Master Plan, Operation Plan + Proforma
Town of Garner
Located on an agrarian tract near historic downtown Garner, Yeargan Park celebrates the Town’s humble past and natural settings, while serving as a family-fun destination park. The concept for the park balances the preservation of the farmstead structures, a one-of-a-kind pecan grove and mature forest with active and adventure recreation opportunities for visitors of all ages and ability levels.
The project team completed an operations and maintenance assessment and proforma for the park to ensure staffing levels were adequate to support the new facility. The proforma illustrated potential cost recovery models and identified opportunities to generate revenue.
The park concept offers a diversity of recreational amenities to provide a variety of experiences for all users, attracting patrons to return again and again. The multi-use fields offer additional space for the Town’s growing soccer and athletics program; tree top trails, zip lines and a pump track invite the thrill seeker; and a large playground, sprayground and open community gathering spaces offer fun for the whole family.
