Sports Complex at John Anson Ford Park

Bell Gardens, CA

The Bell Gardens Sports Complex is located at the John Anson Ford Park, a major regional park facility in the City of Bell Gardens. We were tasked with designing and managing the construction of the new sports facilities, which replaced an old park that was dilapidated and functionally outdated. Our team designed the new park, including three synthetic turf fields, two grass fields, one baseball diamond, one softball diamond, a children’s play area and a concession stand.

We provided multi-disciplinary engineering services that included site planning, design of all structures and fields, preparation of the bid package and assisting the city with contractor selection. During the construction, we provided construction management, claim management, inspections, fund management and labor compliance. This project was completed 30 days ahead of schedule and within the budget in 2009. Once completed, this project was awarded “Project of the Year” by the American Public Works Association.

Although this project was completed over 10 years ago, our team is still currently involved in updates to facilities that have been well-used over the past decade, such as replacing the original turf, replacing the 50-year-old gymnasium floor and a new lighting system for east side of Ford Park.
