Philipstown Parks Community Center Master Plan | Garrison, New York

Philipstown – the existing Philipstown Park and a newly acquired facility adjacent to the Garrison Institute. The team of landscape architects, architects and engineers worked closely with the Town Recreation Commission, the Open Space Institute, the Garrison Institute and members of the public during an extensive public visioning process to develop a detailed program for each site and transform the program into a Master Plan for each parcel. The Community Center site included a new indoor swimming pool and major expansion of the existing Community Center building, extensive parking improvements, reorganized fields and a walking trail. The sensitive nature of each parcel mandated creative thinking to avoid impacts to these two riverfront parcels. The plans recommend green building technologies for both the site and buildings.
