The National Park Service is beginning to work on the development of a management plan, to ensure that the park preserves the site’s resources and provides for an outstanding visitor experience. The National Park Service’s planning for the new park will be done with full public involvement and in coordination with the City of Beaufort, the Town of Port Royal, Beaufort County, Brick Baptist Church, Penn Center, Inc., U.S. Navy, and other stakeholders. Open houses and public meetings will be held to discuss the management plan and invite the public to share ideas for the future of the monument.

Learn more about the resources and current park planning by reading the park's Foundation Document, created in 2019.
