The park features lighted rugby and football fields, a sledding hill, bioswales, a skate park, spray ground, playground, basketball courts, hiking and running trails, picnic shelters, a restroom building, and large expanses of upland and wet mesic native prairie. The project was strategically bid in four separate packages to generate as much interest from the construction community as possible, and the final costs came in $900,000 under budget.
Our involvement with Mulberry Fields began with the master planning process we conducted in 2003. In 2006, the construction of Mulberry Fields was funded through a bond issue and we were selected to implement the master plan. Design and additional public input occurred from spring 2006 to early 2007, with construction in April 2007 and substantial completion in late spring of 2008.
