Benton Borough Park Master Plan

Neighborhood parks facilitate community interaction, fitness, and recreational enjoyment and increase a sense of community. To obtain funding for the improvement of their park, Larson Design Group assisted the Benton Park Commission and community by developing a park master plan.

The plan was developed using the guidelines established by the citizens of Benton Borough following their completion of a park survey that established their likes and dislikes. The focus was to re-establish areas for entertainment, public gathering and recreation.

The park master plan focused on establishing new pathways, play areas, rehabilitating the bathrooms and dedicating a new space for entertainment and public gatherings. The Master Plan also focused on making it easier for visitors to access the numerous pavilions within the park by adding a new entrance drive and cul-de-sac.
