KIWANIS PARK EXPANSION AND BALLFIELD IMPROVEMENTS – YAKIMA, WA

JGM was the park master planning and design subconsultant to the prime consultant, Huibregtse Louman Associates, a Yakima consultant engineering firm. The City of Yakima had acquired a 12-acre urban renewal parcel of land adjacent to its existing 18-acre Kiwanis Park. The City desired to install a new high quality ballfield complex within the new park acreage and redevelop the ballfields in the existing park to the standard of the new fields. The City realized they did not have the funds to accomplish all this work at one time so they asked JGM to develop a master plan that would allow the development of the new fields and the phasing of the redevelopment of the existing ballfields. JGM produced a number of alternative designs for the City and stakeholders to consider. The City selected a preferred alternative and JGM prepared an overall master plan for the entire park that allowed for the phased development of five ballfields.

JGM and the prime consultant produced numerous cost estimates with the alternatives so the City could select what fields and improvements it could afford for the Phase 1 construction. The Phase 1 construction included the development of three, lighted, 300’ softball fields, a restroom/concession stand, a large plaza/assembly area, and a parking area for 300 cars. JGM produced the layout for all of the Phase 1 improvements including vehicular and pedestrian circulation system, the construction details for all the fields, dugouts and fencing, and all planting and irrigation design.

Ted Wall was JGM Principal-In-Charge/Lead Designer for both the park Master Plan and Phase 1 Construction Phases. Craig Lewis assisted with the production of the construction documents and was responsible for the extensive athletic field irrigation design.
