Van Buren County Parks and Recreation Plan
Van Buren County, Tennessee
Recreation Area Management Plan
Van Buren County received funding from the Recreation Education Services division of the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) for a county-wide parks and recreation master plan and Farmer | Morgan was chosen to complete the plan. A series of public workshops were conducted and the recreational, cultural, economic, geographic, and geological conditions of the county were analyzed by the planning team. From this, it was concluded that the county was geographically divided into four quadrants with unique cultural and geological features, based on which specific recreational activities were defined for each quadrant:-
Quadrant 1: Hiking/Camping Activities; Quadrant 2: Water-Related Activities;
Quadrant 3: OHV Activities;
Quadrant 4: Equestrian and Mountain Biking Activities.
Farmer | Morgan made specific recreation development and funding recommendations based on this analysis, as part of the overall plan.
