van der Zalm + associates collaborated with Wilco Civil on this $4.6 million dollar sports field renovation at Minoru Park. This development was completed in anticipation of the upcoming Minoru Sports Complex to be completed in 2016.
The design included a full-size soccer pitch with mini-soccer, field hockey, lacrosse, and soccer line markings along with a double field consisting of baseball and soccer. The baseball field included full coloured synthetic infield with an attachable pitching mound, announcer`s booth, and full-scale backstop and overhang. This field is to be used by all levels of Richmond baseball and provides a first class facility within the City.
Minoru 2 (soccer/lacrosse) includes integrated covered player’s benches, custom goal storage, and spectator seating through the central corridor.
The entire project scope included both fields, announcer’s booth, central corridor through park system, additional parking, tennis courts, and landscape areas. This project was completed with oversight by VDZ+A in late 2014.
