PARKS & RECREATION
The team at CMA has designed a wide array of recreational facilities. These include regional parks, city parks, neighborhood parks, coastal parks, waterfront parks, golf courses and a wide range of athletic fields. Recreational project sizes have varied from 1 acre to 800 acres. The types of facilities range from natural resource based parks that include trails, restored wildlife habitats, wetland creation, observatory towers, and wayfinding packages to urban parks with high level design including water features, tension membrane structures, and outdoor play areas. Our design staff stays current with the latest trends in recreational facility design and has assisted cities with developing their long-range parks and recreation master plans.

Ft. Lauderdale, FL. As part of its celebration of the National Title Game held at the Orange Bowl in January 2013, the Orange Bowl Committee hired the team of Carty Architecture (architecture) and CMA (civil engineering) to design a synthetic turf football field and track within Joseph Carter Park in Ft.

Miami Gardens, FL. CMA worked with Borrelli Architects to design the demolition, earthwork, paving, grading, drainage, landscape architecture and irrigation plans for a park master plan that included professional level soccer field, a baseball field and a multi-purpose field (flag football and soccer) within the existing property adjacent to the existing YMCA Miami Gardens facility located in Miami Gardens.
