City Centre Park

City Centre Park (Center s/b Centre) was a small (2/3 acre) parcel of land sandwiched between a main thoroughfare (Moulton Parkway) and a local retail/ hospitality center. The neighborhood demographic was predominately senior citizens and accessibility was a priority. The hillside site incorporated an ADA compliant pathway traversing a steep slope that connected the hotel/ retail site to Moulton Parkway and a local bus stop. The design components included a venue for small group performances nestled into the natural terrain that maintained views of the distant mountains.

This facility in Huntington Beach is an innovative training center that develops the learning and technical skills of both cadets and students by providing an environment that best balance quality enhancements of both building design and landscape.

LCI achieved this goal by creating a park scenario for passive recreation, biddle and grinder courses for physical training activities and memorial as a focal point next to the building’s main entry. A number of prominent trees were protected through strict construction and management procedures while applicable stormwater techniques such as Modular Wetland Biofiltration systems were considered for the project.
