TAYLOR FIELD PARK CONSTRUCTION PHASE 1 REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL

Project Purpose

The City of Southport was deeded 4.72 acres, formerly known as Taylor field, to be used for recreation purposes only for the City of Southport.  The City has always been a small, pedestrian city with a vibrant community looking for ways to stay active and outdoors.  The City applied for and was granted PARTF funding for Phase 1 in the construction on the park.  The proposed design includes an accessible (0.3) miles of paved walking trail, multi-use open space, picnic area, exercise/fitness stations, fenced large and small dog play area, seating, parking, decorative lighting, landscaping, and connectivity to the waterfront area and another local park, Lowe/White Park.  This park will provide much needed amenities and connectivity to Historic downtown Southport and the Cape Fear River.

Scope of Work

The City of Southport desires to engage a qualified Professional Landscape Architecture and Engineering Firm to provide design and construction administration services for the Taylor Field Park Project Phase 1.
