Techny Prairie Park is a 66-acre parcel owned by the Northbrook Park District, located southeast of the village’s downtown area. Hitchcock Design Group was commissioned by the park district’s construction manager, Corporate Construction Services (CCS), to help it build upon the park district’s existing master plan for the property. The project team was tasked with developing a design to create a unique and attractive park, while also upholding the park district’s established goals and objectives.
Hitchcock Design Group prepared the construction documents and assisted CCS with the bidding and construction phases. This is an important community park that offers a wide range of recreational amenities, including lighted baseball field, batting cages, skate park, synthetic turf soccer fields, play environment, renovated, nine-hole golf course (with support building), and a multi-use trail connection to the regional trail system.
