MHS Planning & Design partnered with the City of Haltom City to design and build Broadway Park. The Park is within a 15 acre area. MHS developed an accurate preliminary cost estimate totaling +/-$1,200,000, managed multiple contractors and sub-consultants, and was the primary construction supervisor.
The project consisted of sprayground expansion and enhancements, tennis court and basketball court resurfacing, shade canopies, a looped walking trail, playground, landscaping, parking improvements, parking restroom, lighting, and electrical.
Broadway Park is innovative because it contains one of the original spraygrounds constructed in the State of Texas. The existing sprayground was old and dilapidated but because of its history, the design team and city staff decided to upgrade and expand the system in lieu of demolishing it. The old vertical elements were removed and reused if possible and new elements were added along with an expanded water play surface. Tanks were added to the drain system in order to collect water and irrigate the neighboring football and soccer fields.
