Weston & Sampson provided large-scale planning, design, engineering, and permitting services for the renovation of Page Park in Bristol Connecticut. The existing 80-acre park includes a network of vehicular, pedestrian, and bicycle circulation paths, parking, water courses, a pond supported by a dam, disc course, sledding hills, pavilion, pool and bath house, tennis and basketball courts, and active recreation diamond and rectangular fields. Through our experienced team, Weston and Sampson guided the city through a $15M list of desired improvements towards a creative, realistic, and sustainable solutions that is phased in a logical, fiscally responsible manner.
Recognizing the significance of this project to Bristol, Weston & Sampson facilitated the preliminary design process with open ears and open eyes and sought ways to improve the interstitial relationship between the proposed site features. We finessed the design to reduce "left over" areas of grass that are unusable and more difficult to maintain. By reconfiguring this area, the sledding hill was also preserved. Weston & Sampson provided geotechnical, stormwater, and utility infrastructure engineering services to determine the best use and appropriate construction methods for the post-tension concrete, lighted, pickleball, tennis, and basketball courts.
The project objectives were:
- Renovation and update to existing amenities and facilities including a lighted synthetic turf baseball/multi-purpose overlay field and appurtenances, sledding hill, four lighted post-tension concrete pickle ball courts, two picnic shelters, outdoor fitness station, Ingraham Softball Field and appurtenances.
- Enhanced walkability within the park
- Enhanced parking availability at turf field, playground, hard courts area, pool, pavilion, disc golf, Ingraham Softball Field
- Installation of sewer connection and parking necessary for improvements at the Page Park Pavilion
