Lancer Park, home to more than 700 students, has a vast untapped potential as an important link to the Appomattox River. The Master Plan envisions various landscaping improvements to the housing complex with several walkways and recreation opportunities developed along the river. It also seeks to expand existing research facilities that will help strengthen Longwood’s academic and research programming in environmental sciences.
“Lancer Park is a highly successful student housing community. The plan is to build on this success by enhancing the landscaping and expanding the Longwood environmental programs within the forest and wetland bio-habitats.” -Louise Waller, executive director of campus planning and construction
