Rivers Edge at Darden Park

Wold | HFR Design provided engineering services for the design and specification assistance to Henderson County to install a playground project titled River's Edge Park at Darden Park.

This age-appropriate playground structure was the inspiration of a local pastor. It was awarded the John S. Wilder Rebuild Tennessee Award at the statewide Tennessee Development District Association meeting in Murfreesboro in 2015. Wold | HFR Design provided topographical surveying and design of the grading plan for the facility's concrete pad/sub-surface. We provided technical specifications for the playground and the safety surfacing. Our involvement included: assistance to the county on the reimbursement requests to state government from the Local Parks and Recreation Fund program. The approximate size of the poured-in-place Vitriturf safety surface is 8,600 SF.

The playground was designed and built to ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) standards. Children from pre-school to 14 years of age could benefit from standard elements of play and be included with those who do not have special needs.
