Projects Patch Reef Park
CGA was selected by the Greater Boca Raton Beach and Parks District to provide design, permitting, bidding and construction management services for the conversion of three existing natural grass fields to synthetic turf fields at Patch Reef Park. The project included the design for the installation of synthetic turf fields, the drainage system under the new fields, relocation of existing utilities, sidewalk improvements, relocation of existing landscaping, and modifications to the irrigation system. The new synthetic turf fields feature a totally organic mix of in-fill material, which means there is no black crumb rubber on the fields. The new fields also feature a new automatic, underground irrigation system that will greatly assist the park staff in keeping the field moist, which is a requirement for the organic in-fill material. This irrigation system can also be utilized to keep the fields cool in the summer months. The fields were designed to serve multiple sports, including football, lacrosse and soccer. In order to construct the new fields, several existing Sabal Palms had to be relocated, major modifications were made to the existing irrigation system in the park, and new landscaping was added. CGA also provided complete construction administration and inspection services throughout the construction of the project.
