South Turkey Run Park - Concept Plan

George Washington Memorial Parkway » South Turkey Run Park - Concept Plan » Document List

The National Park Service (NPS) is preparing for the next chapter of the South Turkey Run Park, formerly known as Claude Moore Colonial Farm.

The outcome of the effort will be a plan that contains a range of refined concepts that could then be considered as options for the NPS to implement. It's likely that actions would require additional environmental and historic preservation compliance prior to implementation. The NPS will not pursue any kind of commercial development.

The agreement between the NPS and the Friends of Claude Moore Colonial Farm, which provided day-to-day Colonial themed programming in this area of the park for many years, expired December 21, 2018. The Friends organization is continuing to remove remaining personal property from the park. While the group's operations and programs in the park concluded in December, the majority of the park has remained open for visitor use. Currently, there are no visitor services or facilities available.
