Getting Outside: LDG Celebrates Parks and Recreation Month

Summer is the season to spend time outdoors, from the mountains to the beach and everything in between – and all those places have parks, trails and playgrounds to enjoy that are the result of hard work by local Parks and Recreation departments.  

The National Recreation and Parks Association designates every July as Parks and Recreation Month, a chance to recognize that hard work and celebrate the outdoor spaces that we all appreciate. Over the years, Larson Design Group (LDG) has completed many projects for recreational places, including: 

Miller’s Run Greenway Bike/Ped Path (Loyalsock Township): LDG provided survey, environmental, geotechnical, bridge and transportation design, and construction services for Phase 1 of the Millers Run Trail.

Brooke Hills Park (Wellsburg): Larson Design Group (LDG) was originally hired to perform a lodge feasibility study and park master plan for the 700-acre county park.

Buffalo Valley Rail Trail (Lewisburg): LDG was instrumental in the engineering and final design for the construction of a picturesque nine-mile Rails to Trails facility from Lewisburg to Mifflinburg. In addition to meeting a tight timeframe for funding availability, the project included safe crossings at crossroads, establishing mile markers and their GPS coordinates, and access areas with parking, restrooms and signage at each end of the trail. 


Founded in 1986, LDG is an award-winning, 100 percent employee-owned national architecture, engineering, and consulting firm with 18 offices in seven states and a vision to elevate client relationships, enrich the careers and lives of its employee-owners, and enhance the communities in which it operates.
