Architecture, Interior Design, FF&E

VPS Architecture teamed with Lochmueller Group to design and oversee construction of the Deaconess Sports Park. The impressive park encompasses eight competition fields supporting girls’, women’s and men’s fast and slow-pitch softball, as well as boys’ 12 & Under baseball tournaments. Playful features to engage the entire family were implemented within the plan, including multiple playgrounds, a water feature/splash pad and a center bandstand for movies and live entertainment.

Careful attention was paid to lighting design to ensure the sports park was a considerate neighbor to its surrounding community, and tensile shade structures were added over spectator seating to protect watchful fans from glaring sun or inclement weather. The wi-fi tower provides the capability to live stream games from the championship field designed specifically for broadcast tournaments.
