Parkland is taking steps toward developing a 36-acre park to provide residents and families with more recreational space.

According to the city, the park will encourage healthy, active lifestyles while providing additional room for social gatherings.

In 2019, the city purchased 24.3 acres of land at 8400 Nob Hill Road on the northeast corner of Nob Hill Road from Beasley Media Group, an owner/operator of radio stations based in Naples, Florida, for $7.1 million.

Combined with the current 12 acres owned by the city, the new community park is referred to as 36-Acre Park, according to the master plan.

“We are very much at the beginning of the process and are working out design details,” said Todd DeAngelis, Director of Communication. “When the procurement director can agree on terms with the top-ranked firm, then we are able to move forward with that firm.”

Of nine companies responding to the project’s Request for Qualifications, CPH, Inc., the number two ranked firm, was selected. The Construction Management at Risk will provide input to CPH during the design phases and become the general contractor during the construction phase, such as the type and size of the structural system, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems.

During this phase of development, all decisions on construction will be finalized and documented for bidding.

CPH will lead an in-depth community and participation program to help make residents active partners in the development of the program. They have previously assisted in other public service projects, such as the Atlantic Beach Intracoastal Waterway Park and Sunnytown Parks. CPH developed public access and overall upgrades in both projects, emphasizing community vision and needs.

The 36-Acre park is expected to open to the public within three years of the final disbursement of an FCT grant award.
