Dolores Park, San Francisco, CA
Lea & Braze Engineering, Inc. worked with the Friends of Dolores Park to design a world class children’s playground that spans over 2 acres. The existing historic playground faced many issues such as rundown park features, and severe drainage issues (the existing playground was built over an old swimming pool and had very poor drainage). We developed an improved grading and drainage plan to elevate the overall drainage issues and the tremendous amount of ground water upslope of the new playground. Additional services included: ADA upgrades and accessibility, development of an underground subdrain system to capture runoffs without the need for many traditional inlets, and construction observations.
