Park and Recreation Planning Consultants

Our professional careers as practitioners, administrators and Why II Earthplan planners in parks and recreation have given us a very good life.

Sharing the keys with others and making a difference gives us great satisfaction.  This is what defines us.  This is why we do what we do.

  • We believe public parks and recreation are essential to a thriving community.

  • Parks above all things provide a quality of life engine that exemplifies the good things government can offer.

  • We want to help providers ensure a sustained future by making things practical, safe, accessible and actionable.

  • We respect tradition while simultaneously embracing innovation

Our 90+ years of combined experience in park and property management, design and hands-on operations is the value-added Earthplan LLCdimension provided for each and every project. 

Even the exciting, visionary projects must be thoroughly analyzed for durability. Is there sufficient revenue stream to sustain the project/operation?

We believe these questions must be asked, and answered, before embarking on any new enterprise.  Our resources can provide expert business analyses for any proposed project.  We look forward to sharing those experiences with you.
