|Marathon Community Park
Owner: City of Marathon
Project Location: Marathon, FL
RDC was selected by City of Marathon to construct the second phase of a three-phase park project.
Marathon Community Park sits on 11 acres, is located between US1 and a mangrove preserve. The park boasts two tournament soccer fields, an extreme skate park, restroom/concession building, lighted pathways, parking, shade shelter and a 2000 sq. ft. amphitheater. The amphitheater is a state-of-the-art tensile membrane fabric structure that accommodates a full-size orchestra and meets the 150mph win dload for the Florida Keys.
A basketball court and shuffleboard court round out the sports venues for this active park. All activity areas are lighted for nighttime use.
The site required all native plant species to be relocated to an offsite nursery and returned when landscaping was ready.
Phase II completes the parking requirements for all three phases.
