Gurcinas & Associates, Inc. (GA) designed a power distribution and lighting system to help ensure that the park can be enjoyed well into the evening, as virtually all of the sports and activity areas are lighted for evening use. GA also designed such features as off-site lighting controls, paging and telephone systems. The off-site lighting controls were a particularly innovative solution, as they allow the City Parks & Recreation Department to remotely control the lights for each field individually from its offices, avoiding the need to send employees across town to turn lights on and off. The project was completed in phases, requiring detailed design of ultimate system requirements and infrastructure phasing in order to minimize expansion costs.
