Liberty Park – Parking & Drainage Improvements


Flowood, Mississippi

Project Information

Liberty Park is a Flowood city park located off of Liberty Road in Flowood, MS that was constructed around the year 2006.  Liberty Park houses baseball, softball and soccer fields and is the host to numerous events throughout the year as well as soccer, baseball and softball leagues and tournaments.  As the population of these sports has grown since the park was constructed, it became evident to the City that some upgrades to the facility were needed to continue to provide a safe environment for the public users of the park.  During this time, the City of Flowood obtained additional property west of and adjacent to the existing Liberty Park with the intentions of expanding that park in some form or fashion in the future.  In the spring of 2014 Benchmark was hired by the City of Flowood to prepare a master development plan of the park and as part of that process to come up with a solution to the existing parking issues and lack of sidewalks for pedestrians to get to and from the ball fields in a safe manner.  We worked for the City in preparing numerous master plans and budgets for such, decided that the immediate need of public safety was the most critical aspect of the project and moved forward preparing plans, specifications and bidding documents to add sidewalks, improve the parking layout by adding new parking areas and widening existing parking areas and also making drainage improvements.  The project was advertised for bid in August of 2014 with a contract being awarded in September of 2014.  The project was completed within budget and accepted by the City in April of 2015.
