Memorial Park

The City of Bayonne asked Clarke Caton Hintz to design a new park and field house on the Peninsula at Bayonne Harbor. Memorial Park is one of many on the peninsula and provides opportunities for active recreation via two soccer fields, a walking fitness trail and tot lot playgrounds. Due to its irregular boundary the design had to creatively solve the issue of centralizing vehicular parking and field house to accomodate all park visitors as well as athletes.

A large concession area with an overhanging roof structure and colonnade along with restroom facilities and storage spaces comprise field house's programmatic elements. The brick facades, steel columns and exposed steel trusses take cues from the City of Bayonne's industrial and historic legacies while being enlightened by the vibrant new construction on the peninsula itself.
