The Crown Valley Community Park Entrance Improvement project is part of of a 3 phase project that the City started in 2015. This was the second phase, which consisted of habitat restoration, the construction of a wetland, two small parking lots, a new entry bridge, an electronic marquee entry sign and an arch entry sign. The overall project consisted of a redevelopment effort for the Crown Valley Community Park that included repurposing & improvement of the green space, walking paths, and athletic fields, environmental enhancements, renovation of existing facilities, and construction of new facilities. The existing park entrance consisted of an Arizona crossing – several culverts in a low lying area that often flooded during precipitation events. As part of the entrance improvements, the City was looking for a signature entrance that enhanced the aesthetics of the newly developed green space to welcome visitors and improved the drainage of the area.
The twin Super Cor structures provided what they were looking for within the project budget. The skewed ends of the structures are supported by cast-in-place concrete head walls that include detailed architectural features to tie the structures into the park and provide the look they needed.
Design of the head walls was a collaborative effort with the structural engineer, who had not designed head walls with a skewed structure of the size used for this project. The stiffness and shape of the deep corrugated Super Cor structure, along with support provided by the concrete head walls, made the skewed ends possible.
The project also won the local ASCE Parks & Rec Project of the Year.
