Imperial Park - Brookfield, Wisconsin

Imperial Park - Brookfield, WIR.A. Smith National worked with the City of Brookfield Department of Parks and Recreation to develop a master plan and construction documents for the Imperial Neighborhood Park in the center of one of Brookfield’s long established subdivisions, Imperial Estates. This neighborhood park is designed to serve residents within a one-mile radius of the park site.

The overall site is 13 acres, and is owned by the Elmbrook School District. Much of the site was mainly undisturbed and includes looped walking trails. The remaining five to six acres of parkland includes a play structure, a playfield, a small parking lot, a paved trail that connects both sides of the park to the neighborhood streets, picnic areas, and a park shelter with a solar light for picnics and other passive events. 

A dry detention basin was designed to reduce peak runoff rates for the 2-year, 10-year and 100-year rainfall events. Grass swales and catch basins were designed to reduce total suspended solids.

The design team worked closely with the Director of Parks, Recreation and Forestry, along with a volunteer neighborhood committee to develop alternative concepts and a final master plan that was presented to the neighborhood residents and the Parks & Recreation Commission. Construction of the park was completed during the summer of 2012.
