The first pitch was thrown on Saturday, September 7, 2013, to kick off the inaugural season at the Hawkeye Park Miracle Field in Ankeny, Iowa. The park provides approximately 3,500 children with special needs in Central Iowa a safe place to play. Snyder & Associates donated professional services to prepare design and construction documents for Miracle Field improvements. Our team provided site layout, utility and storm sewer plans, and landscape design. Park improvements include a custom rubberized turf field that provides a flat, cushioned surface free of obstacles and a shelter with a concession stand. A sensory rich playground with a 100 percent accessible rubberized surface will be added in 2014 to provide an inclusive play experience for children of all abilities.
