Hanging Rock State Park Expansion Master Plan


Vade Mecum at Hanging Rock State Park

A park expansion master plan is complete for the 750 acres of land that the State of North Carolina acquired north of Hanging Rock State Park. This plan establishes a vision for the newly acquired land. Our consultant, obs Landscape Architects, took all the comments we received from our public workshops and helped us create concepts for the Vade Mecum and Moore's Springs properties at Hanging Rock State Park.
