Coleman Memorial Park - Master Site Plan
The purpose of a master plan is to develop a comprehensive vision for a park system, individual park, open space area, recreation facility, and/or programs in context of its location, natural resources, and visions of the community. This vision will serve as a framework for the long-term use and development of a park or facility.
The City of Lebanon completed a Master Site Plan for Coleman Memorial Park in 2011. Since that time, many improvements have been made to the park including the renovations to the amphitheater, the addition of a bike pump track, multiuse trails, a playground, ballfields, tennis courts, basketball courts, stormwater improvements and more. Since the original master site plan is over 10-years-old, the City and the Coleman Memorial Park Board of Trustees decided it was important to update the plan and hear what the communities recreation needs are now. The updated plan will serve as a blueprint for the City to apply for grant funding and to make future improvements to the park. To assist with the master site plan update, the City has retained Simone Collins Landscape Architecture of Norristown, PA, that completed a master plan for Coleman Memorial Park in 2011.
On February 27, 2023, the City of Lebanon, Coleman Memorial Park Board of Trustees and Simone Collins, hosted a public meeting to share the draft plan and hear from the community. Below is the draft plan map with proposed improvements, the slides and the notes from the meeting. If you missed the meeting but would still like to be involved, complete the survey linked below.
