Design

In April 2010, Santa Monica City Council awarded a contract to James Corner Field Operations and its team of experts to design two parks for the Santa Monica Civic Center.  

At the conclusion of an intensive community participation process with input from neighborhood groups and City commissions, on October 25, 2011, design development plans for both parks and the associated streetscapes were approved by City Council.   Construction is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2012 and the park it set to open by the end of 2013.
