Maximizing the usability of recreational sporting fields after a severe flood in New York

In April 2007, a nor’easter dumped seven inches of rain in a 24 hour period over New Rochelle, New York. This storm event, which was greater than the 100 year storm, flooded City Park and caused damage to the existing synthetic soccer surface.

Stantec was retained by the City of New Rochelle to first develop a master plan and then to design and prepare construction documents for the Phase 1 work, which included the replacement field. The objective of the plan was to determine the best location for the reconstruction of the soccer field and the surrounding fields. The master plan evaluated the layout of all fields to minimize overlap and maximize the playability of the recreational fields. The plan called for the realignment of the softball and baseball fields and for a softball field to be moved. New sports lighting would be added for fields without lights. In addition to the athletic fields, a system of new walking trails connected the fields to the picnic pavilion, relocated basketball court and playground with water spray feature. Parking areas were realigned and additional parking spaces were provided.
