Evoke a Sense of Place
The Town of Bolton and The LA Group initiated a comprehensive capital rehabilitation plan for Rogers Memorial Park, one of the most significant public spaces in the Lake George region.
The Park serves as the home for the regional Visitor Center and Chamber of Commerce, local historical society, and public library. Prior to completion of the improvement project, the Park was in disrepair and did not meet public accessibility guidelines and stormwater standards.
The LA Group helped the Town of Bolton locate a new Visitor Center and historical society expansion that respects the integrity of the Park and the watershed of Lake George; incorporate green infrastructure strategies; improve pedestrian connections; and offer an experience that evokes a sense of place consistent with the Adirondack hamlet setting.
The LA Group had the primary responsibility for overall project management, including public and community participation. The firm also provided landscape architecture, civil engineering, and construction administration services.
