Great new venue offers wide variety of amenities in River City
Neel-Schaffer provided a wide variety of services for the construction of Sports Force Parks on the Mississippi, a new $20 million multi-use complex that opened in February 2019 in Vicksburg near the Mississippi River.
Neel-Schaffer provided the services for Sports Force Parks, a firm that builds and then operates professional-level and world-class parks and athletic complexes around the country.
The new multi-purpose complex includes 750,000 square feet of synthetic turf surface, state-of-the-art lighting, buildings for concessions, restrooms and retail, playgrounds, miniature golf, a zip line, and related parking infrastructure. In total, the park has six full-sized soccer fields and 10 baseball fields – with areas for expansion accommodated in the initial design.
The services provided by Neel-Schaffer included civil site design for grading, drainage, and layout for the new complex. Neel-Schaffer also provided construction engineering and inspection during the construction phase, survey through sister firm Maptech, and water and wastewater design through sub-consultant SOL Engineering.
