Background Information

Planned improvements at Emerald Park include installing a new irrigation system, adding approximately 80,000 square feet of new sod, relocating the baseball infield to be outside the floodway, adding dugouts and a backstop, replacing horseshoe pit fencing, replacing old circuit exercise equipment, and installing drainage improvements.

BHA Design, Inc. and Loewen Engineering, Inc. completed the floodplain analysis and the project design documents.
