Salem Winter Island Park Master Plan

Harriman developed a master plan to help the City of Salem achieve its goals of energizing and guiding the successful renovation and redevelopment of Winter Island Park. The proposed park design helps to enhance Winter Island’s unique natural resources, preserve its historically significant properties, increase the public’s access and enjoyment to the park and enable the park to operate in a fiscally sustainable manner. The master plan incorporates low impact design in order to minimize paving and erosion and preserve shoreline edges and includes learning spaces such as an interpretive trail and an outdoor amphitheater and stage for public educational and cultural programs. A significant public participation program was undertaken as part of the master planning process in order to respond to resident and stakeholder suggestions and concerns and to help build public consensus for programming elements.
