Project Description

Morgan Park is the busiest park in the City of Baldwin Park and contains their largest community center as well as a senior center. The existing play area was prominently located at the corner entrance to the park and was in poor condition. Play equipment was outdated and did not meet current safety standards. A spray/splash feature was in disrepair and was marginally functional. Parking for the facility was not adequately provided. Park improvements included a new parking lot with bio swales collecting all run off water, total removal and redesign of the play area and public plaza, new entry plaza to the adjacent senior center, 1,400 sf splash pad (recirculating water), separate tot lot and school aged play structures, shade sails, plaza lighting, parking lot lighting and a war memorial. Planter walls feature tiles painted by local children engaging a sense of ownership of the facility by the community.
