MASTER PLAN FOR THE CITY OF TUCSON AND PIMA COUNTY
Historic Fort Lowell Park Master Plan, led by Poster Mirto McDonald, will guide the rehabilitation, preservation, enhancement, development, and operations of Historic Fort Lowell Park. The plan was precipitated by the City of Tucson acquisition of the fragile historic Adkins Parcel, with assistance from Pima County. The acquisition joins the Commissary parcel, the Hardy parcel, and greater Fort Lowell Park site to make approximately 70 acre regional park.
Project goals were to protect important natural and cultural resources, reveal all of the stories and the layers of history that define Fort Lowell Park, provide park experiences for a variety of ages and interest groups, respect the relationship between Fort Lowell Park and surrounding neighborhoods, and establish good park access and connectivity to surrounding sites and amenities.
The Preservation Plan for the Adkins Parcel at Fort Lowell Park was completed as part of the MP process and set the stage for Poster Mirto McDonald to undertake rehabilitation of the surviving Fort-Era Officer’s Quarters.
