Due to incredible community demand for additional sports fields, the Waukegan Park District decided to convert an existing 135-acre golf course to a sports complex. The Park District retained Gewalt Hamilton Associates, Inc. (GHA) as the lead consultant to provide services from initial planning and engineering through final acceptance of this award-winning park.
The stormwater management system provides over 25 acre-feet of storage and an irrigation pond with a total capacity in excess of 3 million gallons.

Site improvements include over 500,000 cubic yards of earthwork and 30,000 lineal feet of utilities. The primary challenge was meeting and obtaining permits for all agencies in less than four months.
