Parks & Recreation Master Plan

The City of Monroe has partnered with CARBO Landscape Architecture to enhance the beauty and functionality of Monroe’s largest parks: Charles Johnson Park, Chennault Park, and Forsythe Park. By seeking input from local residents and collaborating with other designers, a Master Plan has been developed to guide the parks’ improvements. This plan will harmonize with surrounding neighborhood advancements to create a vibrant and welcoming community space.




The team met with several groups representing multiple user types from the surrounding communities. The stakeholders engaged throughout the Master Plan process include representatives from the following Organizations:

General Community Members, Constituents, and the Public • Parks Administration and Staff • Council Members • Community Affairs Staff • Festivals and Hospitality • Healthy Funroe • African American Heritage Museum • Louisiana Purchase Zoo and Gardens • Walking and Running Communities • Mayor’s Office • ULM Fishing Team • Water Sports • Baseball and Softball Communities • Northeast Louisiana Soccer Association • Youth Group Representatives • Friends of Forsythe Park • Chennault Park Golf Course Management
