Parks & Recreation


The once vibrant and actively used ball park, known as the Moana Stadium, had become an eyesore in need of an overhaul. Thanks to the championing efforts of the Reno City Council, City staff and the Great Basin Youth Soccer League, the stadium was able to turn into a community asset. CFA worked with the stakeholder groups including the Great Basin Youth Soccer League, Sierra Aquatics and Little League baseball to prepare a preliminary site  master plan incorporating two soccer fields, little league fields and an aquatics building. In addition, the concept included a concession and restroom building, picnic and children’s play areas to support the sports field development. CFA continued its support of the project by providing services related to public meeting materials, utility research and coordination, grading and ADA compliance. CFA provided survey, civil engineering and landscape architecture services to the City of Reno for the construction of the first phase of the concept master plan, multi-use sports fields. Challenges included retaining a geo-thermal well used to heat the previous public pool, significant utility coordination and appropriate soil preparation for the new sports fields. The project was dedicated to the City of Reno in October of 2012.
