Progress Park Improvements

CGA was hired in December 2010 to complete improvements to Progress Park in Hampton, Iowa.  The project was awarded a CAT grant in conjunction with a Franklin County Conservation Trail and Bridge Project and the City of Hampton's Aquatic Center (also located in the park).  CGA came on board after funding was secured and worked with the City of Hampton to implement the project in accordance with the Grant Application.  CGA's design team began implementing the conceptual design with focus on project objectives, budget, schedule, public input, and utilizing Iowa products and companies.

CGA began the public input process by getting feedback from the youth of the community and parents of young children.  Ballots were delivered to every elementary room classroom to allow the students to vote on their favorite 5-12 year-old play structure and to identify by numbering from 1-5 the most desirable accessories.  A ballot was also delivered to every daycare for the parents to vote in the same manner for the 2-5 year old structure.  CGA also reached out to the skateboarding community and worked with some youth to determine their ideal skate park elements.  The result of this information was brought back to the design team to layout the proposed park.  CGA presented the design and updated cost estimates to the City three times during design and monthly during construction.

The project included grading of the playground area for improved drainage, playground edging, playground surfacing, ADA compliant access and walkways, park shelter, playground structure for 2-5 year-olds, playground structure for 5-12 year-olds, sand volleyball court, basketball court resurfacing, new skate park, repairing and resurfacing four tennis courts, new fencing, two tennis court shelters, tennis court lighting, retaining wall, restriping two parking lots, benches, picnic tables, little league bleachers, and landscaping.  CGA identified owner purchased and supplied items utilizing Plastic Recycling of Iowa Falls for tables and benches and MUSCO lighting for volunteer installed tennis court lighting.  The project included three separate construction contracts, five separate owner purchased items contracts, and coordination with the Aquatic Center and Franklin County.
