PROJECT DESCRIPTION

The plan includes a large lawn area, P-patch, new fruit trees, edible landscaping, universal access ramp, neighborhood gathering area and a children's play that includes a large drystream bed with rocks and sand.

The park site is conveniently located at an important neighborhood intersection. The Final, Approved, Conceptual Plan by the Berger Partnership, Landscape Architects.
