Owner: City of Doral
Project Location: Doral, FL
Doral Parkwas a donated parcel of property to the County in exchange for concessions in surrounding developments. The unfortunate part of the gift is that the developer used the site as a trash dump prior to giving it to the County.
The City of Doral with master planning by Bermello Ajamil and Partners designed many options for their new park. The final selection contained two lighted soccer fields designed with Sportexe Synthetic Turf, three lighted basketball courts, two lighted sand volleyball courts, walking path with 10 station Vita Course, picnic shelters, large ADA accessible playground with shade canopy, lighted tennis courts, 5,000 square foot Recreation Center Building, parking for 152 cars, open play areas, landscaping and perimeter fencing, scoreboard for all sports and a central plaza for gathering with neighbors.
Prior to the construction of the designed park amenities the park property must have 7 feet of construction debris removal and filled with suitable soil.
The City Commission made the decision to spend the additional dollars to provide the City's citizens with the finest quality facilities available. The Sportexe Synthetic turf on both soccer fields will allow the citizens to use the soccer fields 8-10 hours a day without wearing out the surface as often happens with Bermuda sod.
