Construction is underway for this landmark park project

Formerly a mobile home park, the City of Newport Beach’s Marina Park will feature unique public recreational marine facilities on a 10.5-acre waterfront infill site. With the new marina basin now finished, the project focus has turned to completing underground utility work, frontage improvements, park buildings and sidewalks. The foundation and 90% of the block and steel structural support for the 24,000 s.f. Community & Sailing Center and its iconic lighthouse tower is complete, as is the new 16” water main crossing the property. Projected for completion in Spring 2016, the $24M Marina Park project is currently under budget and ahead of schedule, and will ultimately include a 5-acre landscaped park with themed playground, outdoor fitness circuit, basketball courts, picnic area, café, parking lots and new 6,100 s.f. Girl Scout Leadership Center. All of the buildings are designed to meet LEED Silver rating requirements

The Fuscoe team has completed engineering plans as well as both topographic and hydrographic surveys for the Marina Park site. Design objectives included an emphasis on water quality and minimizing impacts to the aquatic environment. This project also required intensive California Coastal Commission coordination and approval.
