CLINTON LAKE ADULT SOFTBALL COMPLEX
Working with the City of Lawrence Parks & Recreation Department, Landplan Engineering developed the master plan for this Adult Softball Complex located in southwest Lawrence, Kansas adjacent to the Youth Sports, Inc. recreation complex. The goal of this facility is to serve the diverse and rapidly growing recreational needs of the Lawrence community. This 68-acre complex is planned to include ten adult softball fields, parking for approximately 940 vehicles, pedestrian trails, play equipment and shelters, wetland habitat, bicycle trails, concessions and batting cages.
Landplan also provided design and construction documentation services for Phase I implementation of this complex. This $1.6 million initial project includes four (4) adult softball fields, batting cages, concessions, parking, lighting, playground equipment, site improvements and other associated facilities. The lighted softball fields feature 300-foot fences, warning tracks, "Turface" infields, and irrigated outfields.
Landplan Engineering, as the lead consultant, coordinated the efforts of architects and other engineers.
Landplan Engineering's athletic facility projects have encompassed the planning and/or design (new and renovations) of nearly 60 soccer fields, 75 softball diamonds, 15 baseball diamonds, 75 tennis courts and 20 football fields, as well as basketball, volleyball, golf course and multi-purpose field facilities. Each facility type requires knowledge of national standards for both competitive and recreational play and an awareness of the potential intensity of use to ensure the long-term success of the facility.
