Abstract/Artist Statement

The Van Buskirk Golf Course in Stockton, California has been shut down due to irrigation, maintenance, and budget issues. JCLM Engineering is proposing a renovation of the existing golf course to appeal to a wider community. No large park or recreation center exists within this area of South Stockton, so this renovation is a great resource for those living in the area. The following renovations will be designed to current relevant codes and specifications:

  • New site design

  • Expanded parking lot

  • Grading and drainage

  • Swale design

  • Pond design

  • Structural design of building

  • Foundation design for building

  • Storm and sewer utilities

The community center building will include a snack bar and a recreation room to hold a maximum occupancy of 150 people. The need for a room with this occupancy was expressed by the current community center employees, so this accommodation was especially important. The swales and pond will be designed to assist with drainage from the parking lot and the building.

In future plans, a walking/running trail encompassing the park will be designed. Van Buskirk has multiple ponds where many native geese reside, along with a multitude of trees and vegetation. Four out of the five of these ponds will be redesigned in future plans. Several types of recreational facilities will be designed to appeal to a multitude of visitors: soccer fields, a football field, tennis courts, volleyball courts and a new playground. To accompany the recreational facilities, restrooms, and drinking fountains will also be added. Two additional parking lots will also be later designed at either end of the park, to allow for easier access to some of its amenities.

This proposed renovation will add value to the growing community within South Stockton. By creating a more engaging and interactive space, the community will continue to grow and thrive!
