Project Description

Marina Park

An existing mobile home park was demolished to make way for Marina Park, which features unique public recreational marine facilities on a 10.5-acre waterfront infill site. The $36M city redevelopment project entailed dredging of 45,000 cubic yards of soil to construct a 23-slip transient vessel boating marina with improved launch areas and in-slip pump out stations; 24,000 sf Community & Sailing Center building with administrative offices and classrooms for boating/related programs; new 6,100 sf Girl Scout Leadership Center; and a five-acre landscaped park with amenities that include a freestanding playground lighthouse feature, nautical-themed playground, outdoor fitness circuit, basketball courts, picnic area, on-site café, reconstructed restroom, shower and laundry building, open grass areas and parking lots, as well as frontage street improvements. All of the buildings were designed to meet LEED Silver rating requirements.

The Fuscoe team 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.
