10 ACRE PARK SITE
DesignTek prepared construction documents for a 10 acre park site on behalf of the Mokena Park District. This plan included the grading and earthwork balance of the entire 10 acre parcel including setting elevations for all proposed amenities. The park site was designed to meet all ADA requirements based on funding through a grant by the State of Illinois. As an ADA compliant facility, special considerations were needed in respect to the site grading. Amenities that meet ADA requirements included walking trails, several viewing areas/locations for the baseball field and multi-use playing fields, numerous ADA accessible picnic tables and game tables, bocce ball courts, as well as parking and general HC accessible routes. Additional special considerations included the design of bio-swales and alternate design of “Permeable Pavement” for the 45 stall parking lot.
