TERRA worked with the Park District of Oak Park and Nagle Hartray on the major renovation of Ridgeland Common. The renovation includes complete building reconstruction with expansion of the ice rink to official size, an artificial turf field with new lighting and fencing, a new children’s water feature, and a new pool deck, among numerous other improvements.

TERRA worked extensively with the project team to select the best material for the athletic field. It was determined that synthetic turf would best suit the park district’s needs. The use of synthetic turf will increase playability of fields, extend the usage season, and provide more flexible use between baseball, football, and soccer. A drainage system beneath the fields buffer the Village of Oak Park storm water system by capturing run-off from the fields, adjacent roofs, parking, and plaza areas.

The Park District of Oak Park pursued LEED Silver status for the Ridgeland Common renovation project. In order to achieve this goal, the project team has incorporated multiple sustainable concepts into the design and construction of the new site.
