Schmidt Design Group, Inc. is completing the General Development Plan (Master Plan) for Children’s Park which establishes a new vision for this existing two-acre park adjacent to the San Diego Convention Center. The proposed enhancements will provide a wide range of amenities to support the recreational needs of a growing downtown resident population. The urban park, originally designed by renowned landscape architect Peter Walker, features a civic pond and mature urban forest. These elements will be preserved and enhanced by the integration of a large children’s play area, fitness area, dog run, and flexible turf area which abuts the existing civic pond. A new vendor building will include a café and plaza with movable furniture along with family style restrooms to further support park patrons. A steel walkway over the civic pond will create a unique and memorable opportunity for visitors to engage the iconic downtown feature. Once complete, Children’s Park will make a significant contribution to the composition of downtown San Diego while enhancing the quality of life for its residents.
