Recreation Center Receives Synthetic Field to Improve Park

Gambrel Park CEDARVILLE Engineering Group

Gambrel Recreation Center - City of Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, PA

CEDARVILLE Engineering Group, LLC (CEG) provided the design and permitting of this urban park restoration, located at 1900 Wakeling Street in the Frankford section of Philadelphia. Our team worked with the City of Philadelphia and neighborhood groups to develop a new and expanded use area. Presently, this Recreation Center has one of the only synthetic turf fields in the City. In conjunction with the field, a park area with sculptures, ornamental trellis structures, new adventure play equipment, and an integrated spray park was designed and constructed.

Working with the Philadelphia Water Department, this proposed improvement also incorporated many innovative green stormwater infrastructure applications, including basketball courts paved with porous asphalt, runoff areas that will infiltrate water as opposed to piping, and landscaping to reduce the runoff and heat. The concepts were detailed, and construction documents and specifications were created for bidding purposes.
