Schon Park Improvements
LOCATION: Village of Glen Carbon, IL
CLIENT: Village of Glen Carbon, IL
TWM’s parks planning and design services were provided for this project at Schon Park. In the second phase of this park development, improvements included a playground area, walking trails, site lighting and landscaping, additional parking, access road, shade pavilions, bike rack, restroom, and concession stand, and several sports amenities such as a ball field with dugout and seating, horse shoe pits, and courts for basketball, volleyball, tennis, and pickle ball. TWM prepared concept plans for two options to consider. One was to follow the original master plan to add a small restroom/concession stand south of the entrance to service the new playground; the other option was to modify the master plan by relocating the entrance road so that the restroom/concession stand and playground would be located on the same side (north) of the road. Cost estimates were prepared and presented to the Village and stakeholders as part of our package.
