“FIELD OF DREAMS” PARK FOR HANDICAPPED CHILDREN 2007

DreamCatcher Park is designed as a “Field of Dreams” for handicapped children. The field exhibits all the standard details of a premium Little League baseball field; however, it is designed with the handicapped in mind.

The field has synthetic track surfacing, making it easier for wheelchairs and alleviating tripping hazards. The field has a drop-off for easy site access and maintains the look and feel of a Major League baseball field with its permanent grandstands and architectural features.

In many respects, this project provides a very unique design experience. Key issues included finalizing the surfacing material; removing tripping hazards such as bases, grade and material changes; and site access.

Glendale Sports Complex, Glendale, California
Glendale Sports Complex, Glendale, California

The LLOYD Team provided design and construction services for the replacement of two existing natural turf soccer fields located within the Glendale Sports Complex in 2005. Overuse and a lack of sufficient maintenance time had turned the fields into dust bowls.

Our professionals worked with the City staff to program for two artificial turf fields with a three-lane jogging track surrounding them. The project included modification of the park’s existing irrigation and drainage systems to accommodate the new fields and jogging path. The City needed fields that could sustain high levels of usage with minimum set-up and little maintenance.

The LLOYD Team conducted meetings with City staff and stakeholders in an effort to better understand the existing programs, expected ages of players, level of competition, tournament programming, available maintenance staff, and areas of storage.

Each baseball field includes scoreboards, a PA system, as well as other typical baseball elements. Of the three fields, one is a championship field designed with a 250-foot outfield. A fire station is proposed for the site at a later date. Phase II of the project will include site work.

This challenging project is set on an irregular shaped parcel of land. Our designers adjusted the field configurations and design to match the existing layout and architecture of the nearby Surprise Recreation Campus. The project encompassed a more provoking design than typical designers are accustomed.
