At one time the Anderson Athletic Park in Anderson, Indiana hosted harness races. Though the park is now only used for special events, the City would like to redevelop the property to offer its citizens better recreation opportunities. Chapman Technical Group's landscape architects are working with engineers from its parent company, GRW, to plan and design the new park.
The old harness racing track will be repurposed into a walking track, and softball and soccer fields will be constructed in the infield, as well as an open lawn for unstructured play. The park will also feature a disk-golf course, walking trails, picnic pavilions and a spray park. The historic above-ground swimming pool will also be renovated.
As part of community development, a new pavilion will be used as a farmers market, as well as other functions.
