BHB is providing civil and electrical engineering and landscape design services for phase two of Chisholm Trail Community Park. Our team is working with the City of Fort Worth and O’Flinn Design Group to install park amenities on 10 acres of undeveloped land. The community park will include a new parking area, sidewalk, hike and bike trails, a picnic shelter, skate park, soccer fields, and a playground with separate elements for 2-5 and 5-12-year-olds. 

Civil engineering services include the addition of drainage lines around the playground and a water line connection for surrounding water fountains. Electrical engineers designed skate park lighting with the consideration of glare to nearby neighborhoods while providing safe illumination levels to meet IES standards and recommendations. To achieve this, light poles were placed in positions that provided multiple angles of light on skaters and park features to eliminate shadows.

A unique landscape design includes a curb-less parking lot that will allow water and chemical runoff to flow directly into the landscape. Grass and roots will then help cleanse the water before making its way into the adjacent lake. This method eliminates the need for a curb and gutter, making it more environmentally conscious and overall cost-saving.

Currently in planning phases, phase two is estimated to be completed in Spring of 2022.
