Fox Ridge Park
DesignTek was the civil design firm responsible for designing a 10 acre park site on behalf of the Mokena Park District. The design included all the civil site components – earthwork balance, grading of site amenities, including a 0.50 mile walking trail, 45 stall parking lot, tennis courts, soccer and baseball fields, playground area with equipment, and ADA accessible amenities such as gaming tables, pavilion, walking trails and fountains. The project included coordination with the landscape architect for stormwater best management practices (bmp’s) including the design of bio-swales, plantings, and permeable pavers as well as design for buffering between adjacent residential homes and the new park site amenities. Storm water routing including surface and sub-surface conveyance to an offsite storm water retention facility was part of the overall design.
