Environmental Resolutions, Inc. (ERI) was retained by the Borough of Medford Lakes to provide surveying, engineering design, permitting, bidding services, and construction consultation services for the Ballinger Lake Park Improvements project. The park will provide for passive recreation adjacent to Ballinger Park and allow users to observe the flora, fauna and wildlife native to the Pinelands community. The Borough received a Burlington County Municipal Park Development Grant to fund this project.
This park is designed to be accessible to all.
Phase I of the project includes an approximate 100 LF porous path designed with Rasocrete paving system and installation of a sidewalk designed with brick banding and ADA ramp. Park amenities include landscaping, a picnic table, and trash receptacles. ERI prepared the engineering design and specifications, and the park has received Pinelands approval.
Phase II of the project includes the design of a boardwalk and pier to provide park users with the opportunity to observe wildlife in and around the lake in a user-friendly environment.
