Sierra Park - Shiloh, IL


SUMMARY

The Village of Shiloh serves approximately 13,000 residents and currently has two recreational park facilities, Three Springs Park and Shiloh Community Park.  Three Springs Park is located in the northwestern part of the Village and Shiloh Community Park is located near the center of the Village.  In order to provide recreational opportunities in the southwestern region of the Village, the Village of Shiloh began a multi-phase development of a new park along Sierra Drive. Kaskaskia Engineering Group, LLC (KEG) worked with the Village to create a conceptual plan for the new park, develop a plan for the construction of the improvements in phases as funding becomes available, and to apply for funding for the improvements for the Village.

KEG prepared a conceptual layout of the overall master plan for Sierra Park which included a nature trail, youth ball field, barbecue grill area, parking area, and access road.  KEG prepared a successful grant application for funding of the first phase of the park improvements from the St. Clair County Parks Grant Commission.

 

KEG prepared construction plans for the first phase of the park improvements.  Phase I included the construction of the access road, drainage and detention design, parking area, and landscaping.  Funding for the Phase II improvements was acquired by the Village and KEG prepared construction plans and specifications for the nature trail and pedestrian bridge.  The Phase II improvements also included park benches along the nature trail, barbecue grill areas, fencing, landscaping, flagpoles, and an entrance monument sign for the park.  

The final phase of the Sierra Park project will include the construction of pavilions, a playground, and extensions of the nature/walking trail.  Design and construction of the Phase III Sierra Park improvements will be completed as funding becomes available.
