120-Acres of Recreational Fun
Phase I of the complex project consisted of the planning, design and construction of a portion of the 120-acre county recreation park located off of State Route 21 in Springfield, Georgia including two baseball fields, three softball fields, a walking trail, and associated site improvements. Additionally, a new 25,000 SF gym was constructed on the complex site which includes 2 large gym spaces with bleachers, public toilets, concession with cooking, storage, changing rooms, and a small office suite. Phase II will include an additional five athletic fields, four multi-purpose (football, soccer and lacrosse) fields, a playground, parking lots and a campground.
The Hussey Gay Bell/CHA design team worked side by side with County staff to make this project a reality despite limited SPLOST funding, challenging soils and extensive utilities coordination.
