Glenn Miller Park Master PlanRichmond, Indiana
Glen Miller Park is the largest and most popular park in Richmond, Indiana. Originally established in 1885 the park encompasses over 200 acres and is home to a number of historically significant sites including the Madonna of the Trail statue, the E.G. Hill Memorial Rose Garden, the Ezra Charles House, and the ever popular Front and Cook springs. In recent years, funding for upkeep of the park has been affected by the economic downturn and many of the historic structures became degraded & unusable by the public.
In 2010, the Department of Parks and Recreation hired Browning Day to develop a renovation and reuse plan for Glen Miller Park and the former Glen Miller Golf Course. The final recommendations were organized into an overall master plan that provided a vision for Glen Miller Park with the established goals of determining alternative uses for the remainder of the Glen Miller Golf Course and the Clubhouse, and making Glen Miller Park feel more inviting and safe to visitors in the evening.
