Memorial Park – Sports Court and Playground Improvements

The City of Huntington commissioned DLZ to develop a new sports court area within their 48-acre Memorial Park. Located at the north end of the park, a new drive and parking lot was constructed as well as connecting sidewalks between all improvements, site furnishings, and a sunshade structure with picnic tables. Existing horseshoe pits were replaced with ADA compliant courts. The main sports court improvements consisted of three tennis courts and hitting wall, three pickle ball courts, and two basketball courts including color acrylic court surfacing, court equipment, player benches, and fencing. Storm water management was achieved through a series of small interconnected basins.

At the south end of the park, an existing playground was renovated including sidewalk replacement and installation of a playground turf safety surfacing system around existing play structures.

DLZ services included survey, preliminary design documents, construction documents, permitting, bidding assistance, and construction administration services.
