Final Design - Angelina Prokich Park

The overall result is a Final Design Concept best satisfies a broad spectrum of user expectations, within project budget constraints and with the highest likelihood of success.

Report CM 17-05 will be presented to Council at the upcoming Sport, Recreation and Culture Committee Meeting on Wednesday, October 4, at 7 p.m., here at Town Hall (4800 South Service Rd.).  Committee meetings are open to the public.

Background

Angelina Prokich Park will be the first Developer Built Neighbourhood Park in the Town of Lincoln.  The management of its design and construction is being carried out by Losani Homes Ltd. as part of the larger Vista Ridge development. Town staff however, have since April been working closely with the Developer’s landscape architectural consultant, Adesso Design Inc. to ensure community needs and requirements are being met and appropriate public consultation has occurred. Final approvals of the design, construction and cost is the responsibility of the Town. As is ensuring that work completed is in keeping with the Town’s construction standards.

As part of the Vista Ridge development, and at no additional cost, the Town received 1.28 ha of land through parkland dedication, resulting in a total park size of 3.62 ha (8.95 acres). With such a large area of land to develop, effectively addressing existing topographies, meeting the needs and desires of the community while maximizing construction dollars, remain key project success imperatives for Town staff.

Park Program Community Needs:

Based on user feedback (collected throughout June), the most desired and important park elements were identified to be:

  • Benches
  • Creative / Unique Equipment*
  • Green / Open Space – for free play
  • Junior & Senior Play Structures
  • Multi-purpose court
  • Parking
  • Park Loop/Pathway
  • Shade Structures
  • Splash/Spray Pad (affordable)*
  • Tennis Courts*

* Denotes ‘feature’ elements outside of typical program elements.

Through a value engineering exercise lead by Adesso Design Inc., cost reduction alternatives were carefully analyzed. Where possible, unnecessary costs were eliminated in exchange for improvements to park functionality and quality, such as the inclusion of key ‘feature’ elements identified above.

Timing

  • From a construction point of view, Vista Ridge development site servicing is expected to commence before the end of this year.  To ensure the most competitive pricing, Adesso Design Inc. will be leading the park element procurement process through the end of 2017 and into early 2018.
  • The project schedule will ensure a spring construction start and will target a late summer completion.
  • Site preparation work is expected to begin late 2017.
