Island Park Masterplan

 island park masterplan – public engagement & planning

Island Park is Fargo’s oldest park with history that dates as far back as the late 1800’s.  The park has been an important cultural, recreational, and community hub for many decades.  Today, the park hosts a community swimming pool, tennis courts, handball courts, and a variety of passive-use infrastructure.  Many historical landmarks still exist within the park.

AGL was commissioned to lead a public engagement and park planning effort as part of a swimming pool replacement project.  Our team engaged with a variety of community stakeholders over the course of several months to understand the longterm needs and wishes for the entire park.  Community engagement projects like this can be challenging due to the large number of stakeholder interests and longstanding history.  The feedback and recommendations collected in this process will guide the development of this park for decades to come.
