The Preserve at Robbins Park
Cornelius, NC

ColeJenest & Stone was commissioned to prepare a detailed master plan for the 100-acre Robbins Park Preserve in Cornelius, NC. The park consists of 50 acres of active recreation, including playfields and community garden, and a 50-acre conservation easement located along the McDowell Creek Greenway. ColeJenest & Stone also worked closely with the developer who controlled the adjacent 75-acre property that separated the park from the Westmoreland Athletics Complex. Realizing this unique opportunity, the developer and the Town of Cornelius collaborated to create an integrated park and single-family residential neighborhood. ColeJenest & Stone then prepared an updated master plan to shape and guide the stakeholders’ vision. The process involved our firm’s collaboration with the Cornelius Parks & Recreation Department, developer and members of eight other Town, County, and State agencies on a comprehensive exchange agreement to safeguard the public’s interests as County-owned land leased by the Town was traded with the developer. The result was a unique place with 140 single-family homes blended around the edges of a 50-acre tree preserve, 65 acres of programmed park space, walking trails, a two-acre pond and an impressive landscaped open space with more than a 1200’ of Catawba Avenue frontage.
