2004 APWA Chicago Metro Chapter Project of the Year — Structures Less than $2 Million 

The project consisted of the construction of a detention facility to accommodate a new condominium development in downtown Roselle.  The detention facility was located at an existing park owned by the Roselle Park District.  The project created a skating park, a Pony League baseball field, and a Miracle League baseball field utilizing the new dry bottom detention facility.  The Miracle League field is specially designed for handicapped individuals with mobility impairments.  The special surface and ADA accessible design make playing baseball possible for those who otherwise would have to participate as a spectator.  The Miracle League Field is located next to the Marklund Center for the handicapped.
