Location: Okaloosa County, FL
Size: 52 Acres
Service: Community Design & Regional Planning

Contact Staff: Joseph P. Loretta, RLA, LEED®AP, BD+C
 

The Master Plan for this 52 acre site included the new Okaloosa County Conference Center, re-design of Marler Park, re-alignment of an existing par 3 golf course, refurbishment of the existing miniature golf course, and site for a future War Memorial. The Master Plan was development through a three step public workshop/charette process.

In June of 2006, the Master Plan was updated. The updated plan illustrates a re-development scenario which displaces the existing par 3 golf course with a proposed marina center, 250 room hotel, parking garage for 800 cars and relocation of the Gulfarium to this property, from its current location on the south side of U.S. 98.

Upon approval of the Master Plan, Genesis prepared construction documentation for the 13 acre Marler Park Site. Marler Park has been designed as an extension of the Conference Center, with areas for active and passive recreation, and a boat launch facility. The design included a grand lawn, central restroom facility, new picnic shelters, environmental interpretive area, tot lot, public beach, fishing pier, stormwater retention, and three boat launch ramps.
