SOUTH VALLEYS REGIONAL PARK

CFA was responsible for the design (master planning and construction documents) and project management of an 83-acre park in the Southwest Truckee Meadows. The park incorporated parcels from different property owners. CFA assisted in the negotiations between the owners and Washoe County for the land dedication. The park includes ballfields, picnic areas, a library/community center and play areas. CFA was responsible for co-facilitating public meetings for input on the master plan, phasing, lighting/traffic issues, and a proposed library. The park acts as a buffer between the I-580 freeway and single-family residential to the west.

Phase 1 included a multi-use soccer/football field, maintenance building, access roads, parking and four little league fields. Phase 2 included a multi-use field, Babe Ruth field, two playgrounds, additional parking and a library. Phase 1 was constructed in 1994 and received an Elmer H. Anderson Award for Excellence in Park Design. In 2004, CFA received the Elmer H. Anderson Award for Excellence in Park Design for Phase 2 of this project.
