The City of Poway has been awarded an Award of Merit in the Consulting Engineers and Land Surveyors of California (CELSOC) 2007 Engineering Excellence Award Competition.
The 8.5-acre Aubrey Park on Midland Avenue between Aubrey, York and Sycamore streets was a co-sponsored project, submitted by the Ccty of Poway and the Poway Girls Softball League (PGSL). The park includes four softball fields, snack shop and restrooms, both a dry creek and boulder-lined water feature, walking trails, tot lots, picnic areas, native tree groves and parking facilities, much of which was constructed within the flood plain. The backstops for the fields also include inspiring architectural elements from Yankee Stadium.
The park was designed by Peter Pountney, Augie Chang and Jim Bliss at Psomas, as the prime consultant, with M.W. Peltz responsible for key landscape architectural elements.
The project will be part of a display at the State Capitol during National Engineer's week on February 18-24 in Sacramento, as well as featured in the CELSOC magazine, the CELSOC newsletter and the CELSOC website.
