The Ames Community Athletic Complex project centered on the development of a triangle-shaped, 26-acre parcel of land located in a densely populated residential neighborhood. The goal of the project was to provide a new administrative facility for the Ames Community School District, along with athletic fields and facilities, in a park-like setting.
Completed in 2016, athletic programming elements include two baseball fields, two softball fields, nine tennis courts, a cross-country running course, and a public plaza for shared restrooms, concessions, and other amenities.
Snyder & Associates created the Master Plan design for the project, which required numerous public meetings to share the proposed improvements and address questions and concerns with local residents, businesses, and stakeholders. Multiple methods of presenting and gathering input were utilized. Services provided by Snyder & Associates included landscape architecture, civil engineering, 3D graphic services, and construction services.
