Larson Design Group (LDG) was contracted by the Penn Township Board of Supervisors and the East Snyder Regional Recreation Association to revise a Master Site Plan for a regional recreation park facility.
The East Snyder Park Master Site Plan was developed and three distinct construction phases were identified.
The first phase focuses on renovations to the existing ball fields, with the addition of a baseball field, softball field, and midget football field. This phase also included the addition of pavilions and concession stands and a playground for 6 to 11-year olds. Restrooms, stormwater facilities, utilities and some landscaping were also included.
Phase 2 consisted of more ball fields, a multi-purpose field, restrooms, a playground for 2 to 6 year olds, pavilions, concession stands, and bocce ball courts. Remaining infrastructure and additional landscaping was also completed.
Phase 3 focuses on the future development of the YMCA parcel.
Design Phase Services Provided
After completion of the Master Site Plan, LDG provided subsequent site design services including land development plans, erosion control plans, stormwater management, cost estimates, driveway permitting and construction documents. Landscaping design was also provided for the park.
Specific Design Techniques/Construction Monitoring/Quality Control
Public input was solicited for East Snyder Park through a number of forums. LDG participated at public and committee meetings, conducted key person interviews, and studied the scheduling and facility needs of local recreation programs.
Various options were provided to the committee throughout the design process along with opinions of probable cost. Once an overall project budget was established, a phased construction approach was applied to the plan.
