The Kings Garden at Fort Ticonderoga

Fort Ticonderoga, New York

In collaboration with Past Designs, the team developed a Master Plan for the historic gardens associated with Fort Ticonderoga. The assessment dated back to the garden’s beginning, and provided site design for public access, parking, walking paths and trails. 

 

The project entailed a preservation plan that addressed the various elements associated with the development periods in the fort’s history and provided the public with access and an interpretive program for a self-guided tour. The challenges included preserving and restoring past elements and integrating present day demands for parking

 

This mile long section of city and state waterfront was transformed into a greenbelt park encompassing Willard Beach, a historic cemetery, the campus of Southern Maine Community College, Fort Preble, Spring Point Lighthouse and Spring Point Marina.

 

This six-year construction project turned an under-utilized area into one of the most popular parks in the Greater Portland area, with attendance increasing from 30,000 to over 130,000 visitors annually.
