Forest City Athletic Fields
Forest City, IA | Sports + Recreation
ISG designed more dynamic athletic facilities for the Forest City community, leading the process to implement new multi-use fields and site features.
For its shared athletic facilities, the Forest City School District, Waldorf University, the City of Forest City, and the Hanson Foundation partnered to implement new and reconstructed athletic facilities, as well as greater amenities to meet the needs of multiple users.
ISG partnered with stakeholders to complete a comprehensive upgrade and reconstruction of their collective athletic facilities. ISG completed a site analysis, topographic survey, and master plan for needed improvements to the shared athletic fields and facilities of the University and the District. The resulting project consisted of a combination of new construction and reconstruction of existing athletic facilities, with designs for new synthetic turf football, soccer, baseball and softball fields, new track and field construction, track resurfacing, and athletic field lighting. Site access and restroom facilities were designed to meet ADA requirements, and new concessions enhanced the visitor experience. To mitigate flooding issues, stormwater conveyance strategies were implemented to direct surface runoff. Together, these facilities provide a shared, multi-use athletic campus that serves an entire community.
