Recreation

Washington Park – West Allis, Wisconsin

Due to deteriorating infrastructure, the park needed to undergo renovation. A new combination soccer/baseball field was created out of an existing baseball field.

The existing basketball courts and tennis courts were all re-lighted. In addition, volleyball courts were added and lighted as well. The existing lighting consisted of deteriorating floodlights on warped wood poles with a menagerie of overhead aerial cable.

The new lighting system that was designed allows the lighting for the basketball, volleyball and tennis courts to turn on prior to sunset and off at park closing with manual overrides, while the combination soccer/baseball field is to be controlled manually.

All controls were accomplished by low voltage system with a switch station located in a park building on site. The control for the combination field is setup to allow the lighting for the baseball use or soccer use to be a “either-or” scenario with an all-off position. There is also a gazebo on site and ornamental path lighting which are illuminated from dusk to dawn.

Veteran’s Park – Waukesha, Wisconsin

The park is part of a long range walk development along the Fox River in Waukesha. Many interesting elements in the layout of the park were created by the landscape architect. We took advantage of these elements and highlighted them. To highlight trees, flagpoles and the sundial in an unobtrusive manner, in-ground lights were utilized.
Adopting a technique used in prior river walk projects, the trellis features in the park were lighted using wall mounted square light fixtures and ceiling mounted light fixtures on the structure that would “disappear” into the metal tubes.
