Shores Park Master Plan
Shores Park – “Plan Your Park” Workshop
On the afternoon of Sunday, October 18, 2015 from 2 – 4 pm, the City of Del Mar is hosting a “Plan Your Park” Workshop at the Winston School Auditorium on the Shores Park site (215 9th Street, Del Mar, CA, 92014).
The City recently completed phase one of the Shores Park Master Plan process which consisted of conducting a community survey, holding twenty interest group meetings, hosting an on-site community workshop, identifying the guiding principles for how the park should be developed, and drafting a preliminary list of proposed amenities for the park. A complete report on the findings of phase one is available at www.delmar.ca.us/shorespark.
The purpose of the workshop is to provide residents with a hands-on opportunity to work with fellow community members and envision how and where potential park amenities could fit on the site. Residents will also weigh in on preferences for the style and character of the park design. Participants will also explore sample designs of recently built parks from around the country that feature similar concepts to interests expressed for the Shores Park thus far.
Feedback from the workshop attendees will be compiled by the landscape architecture firm hired by the City to develop the Park Master Plan, Schmidt Design Group, and used to prioritize possible amenities to include in the park and to develop three concepts for the park design that will be explored further as the Master Plan process continues. The Master Plan is expected to be completed in winter 2016.
