Department of Forests, Parks & Recreation

Vermont has a system of 52 state parks. These very popular parks operate from mid-May through mid-October and vary in size and the services offered. The infrastructure at each state park is highly diverse. Regular maintenance and upgrades are necessary to ensure the parks are fully operational and can accommodate a wide variety of guests. 

Looking over a partially completed construction project at Alburgh Dunes State Park

Agency Facilities works closely with the Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation to address specific engineering needs at each state park, so visitors can have the most enjoyable experience. Agency Facilities designs renovation, upgrades and new infrastructure at these state parks including everything from roads, trails, parking areas, drainage structures, drinking water and waste water systems, bathroom facilities, cabins, picnic shelters, boat launch areas, erosion control, park redesigns, and more. Agency Facilities works with the local, state and federal governments to obtain the required permits and authorizations before construction can begin, and then provides construction oversight to ensure the project is built to the highest standards.
