Last week both BLP offices got together at Fort Yargo for our quarterly employee meeting. We discussed all of the work we’ve done with Georgia Department of Natural Resources over the past decade and it was great to see our work at Fort Yargo including campsites, camper cabins, and the new Visitor Center. After a year of isolation we enjoyed having everyone together on a sunny day!
Visitors to Red Top Mountain State Park will be able to enjoy a new and improved beach area when the weather warms up! Breedlove Land Planning developed plans for the Department of Natural Resources to update the area’s amenities and improve access from the parking area down to the sandy beach. The design nestles improvements under existing tree canopy, including a new restroom building, ADA compliant board walks, new picnic areas, and a new multi-use plaza area that can accommodate events and food trucks. The project is currently under construction with an anticipated completion date in the spring. Breedlove Land Planning looks forward to seeing the project completed and in use!
The newest addition to Fort Yargo State Park is up and running. Breedlove Land Planning is pleased to have worked with the Georgia Department of Natural Resources to develop their new yurt campground. The site is located on a quiet peninsula and provides campers with a low impact, yet comfortable way to enjoy the natural environment. Breedlove Land Planning designed a similar yurt campsite at High Falls State Park in 2007 and has been involved in a number of State Park projects including work at Cloudland Canyon, Magnolia Springs, and Red Top Mountain State Parks.
