Evans Park at Millville

GMB provided architectural and engineering services to the Town of Millville for their new Town Park project, which includes a pavilion and a community center, a playground with large play structures for children of all ages, as well as recreation courses for older children and adults, bocce ball and pickleball courts.

The new community hall building shall house a large multi-purpose meeting room, an office, a conference room, a residential-type kitchen, storage areas, and restrooms. The new recreation building shall house restrooms for park visitors and storage space for park maintenance.

The site work involves two DelDOT entrances, a 45-space stone and concrete parking lot, drive isles, site grading, paver plaza, sidewalks, asphalt track, stormwater piping and inlets, stormwater detention pond, site utilities, lighting, and coordination of the park equipment and play surfaces with the manufacturer.

GMB’s involvement in this project included full architectural and engineering design of the two park buildings, as well as finalization of the site design which we took over from another firm.

The park opened to Town residents in March 2021, with the exception of the pickleball courts which are in the works! The community center and bathrooms are not yet open due to the pandemic, but the Town is looking forward to utilizing them for future events.
