East Orange Neighborhood Park
Orange County, FL
CPWG Engineer Jeff Earhart assisted Orange County in developing the East Orange Neighborhood Park adjacent to a head start program and a library. The amenities at the park include tot-lot, big kids playground, basketball court, little league baseball field, large and small pavilions, restroom facilities, long walk trail through wetland type areas, landscaping and other features. The infrastructure design included: site grading, stormwater design and permitting, potable water design and permitting, wastewater system design, roadway and parking design, and wetland issues
Construction Plans and Specifications: Staff performed all necessary design, analysis, and production of construction plans for the project civil site, irrigation, and site lighting elements. Drawing production was completed in AutoCAD format. Staff prepared project specifications and special provisions for project bidding.
Permitting Services: Staff coordinated meetings with permit agencies. Permits were obtained from the St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD), Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and Orange County Building Department to construct the project. We also performed site studies for wildlife impacts and handled Gopher Tortoise issues.
Bidding Services: Mr. Earhart prepared and reviewed all bidding documents and specifications for the project. Staff also assisted the County with bid solicitation, responding to bidder questions, reviewed of all bids received and provided a selection recommendation to the County.
Construction Administration Services: Staff provided construction administration services, site inspections, utility company coordination, site meeting attendance, review of shop drawings, and review of pay requests.
Design/Layout of Landscape Planting Elements: A landscaping plan around the playground, walking path and perimeter fencing was critical to the integration of the park with the community.
Irrigation System: Staff designed a fully operations automatic irrigation system to service the ball fields and the surrounding area. Irrigation system design and electrical system design were coordinated with Mary Bates and Bobes Associates, respectively.
Playground/Picnic Pavilions: The interrelationship between the location of adult recreational facilities, parking areas, and children playground areas was conducted. Picnic Pavilions, bleachers, benches and area lighting areas were designed to provide adequate site drainage. The entire layout of the East Orange Neighborhood Park system was planned, coordinated and laid-out.
