The park is being developed in three phases. In Phase I, Logan Simpson provided conceptual alternatives analysis and design development, culminating in delivery of 30 percent schematic plans for the park’s three phases. Phase I included access and parking improvements, a new picnic area and dog park, and fencing, lighting, and irrigation improvements to athletic fields.
In Phase II, Logan Simpson provided landscape architecture services as a member of a design-build team. It was important to the City that Phase II foster a physicalclimate that engaged the needs of its residents. Amenities include a skate park, a splash pad, playgrounds, a basketball court, softball fields, shade structures with tables and BBQ grills, open multipurpose lawn areas, a restroom building, and a dog park.
In addition to serving the needs of local neighborhood residents, Surprise Farms Community Park will provide a venue for revenue-generating community events such as soccer tournaments, movies, concerts, and fairs.
