Manchester Sports Park
Scope: Park Master Plan
Location: Manchester, TN
Services: Engineering, Planning
Manchester acquired a 22-acre tract of land for both active and passive park amenities. HFR was selected as the lead firm to Master Plan the facilities to be incorporated into this park. We utilized a public input forum to determine the best use of the property based on the needs of the community. Amenities being considered are 4-300’ softball fields, a playground area, pavilion(s) with passive areas, centrally located concessions and restrooms, irrigated playing fields, sidewalks and paths that would tie into the Little Duck River Greenway, and parking. Manchester had a quick turn-around schedule for this project, and we were able to meet their parameters without problems being encountered. Grant funds were awarded to this project to develop an energy efficient strategy to operate facilities more economically in addition to the development of the Master Plan. This project is currently in the design phase.
