Miles Park Phase II Grant Application Services, Design, and Construction

G&A prepared a successful 2021 DCNR Community Conservation Partnerships Program (C2P2) grant application for Phase 2 improvements to Miles Park. The final scope of work included rehabilitation work on an existing basketball court including the addition of seating/retaining walls, grading and stormwater work to correct drainage issues, color coating and line striping including the addition of pickleball lines, and bleachers. This resolved a number of issues including cracked and degrading blacktop, erosion of an adjacent embankment onto the court, and drainage problems after rain events made the court unplayable.  ADA accessible walkways were also included in the scope, which make the courts accessible for play by all.  Services provided include grant preparation, grant management, engineering, landscape architecture, and construction observation.

This project is the second of three phases of improvements to Miles Park, all of which received DCNR C2P2 Grants totaling $669,000.  Phase I, completed in 2019, included ballfield rehabilitation work, ADA access enhancements, green infrastructure improvements, and the addition of trails.  Phase 3 will include rehabilitation of the existing playground with inclusive, sensory play equipment, replenishment of engineered wood fiber safety surfacing, the addition of a pervious ADA access route to the playground, shade trees, and a solar charging station with benches.  Phase 3 is expected to be constructed in 2024.
