Planning began in the fall of 2022. The first round of public involvement occurred in the winter of 2022/2023. The planning team used that input from public involvement as well as the expertise of planners and park and regional staff to develop the draft general management plan and environmental assessment. Both documents are now available to the public for review and comment from 9/11/2023 - 10/11/2023.
Blackstone River Valley is in the process of developing a General Management Plan for the park that will guide future management of natural and cultural resources, facilities and services, and visitor experiences.
