Project Description

The Packing District and Farmers Park

The avant-garde Farmers Park is a vital component of Anaheim’s historic Packing District. Designed by renowned Ken Smith Landscape Architect as a venue for both local residents and produce vendors, the two-acre urban infill Farmers Park links the Packard Building and Packing House, two historic sites redeveloped for retail and commercial purposes. In keeping with its historical context, Farmers Park features Valencia orange and olive trees, as well as concrete benches, a community garden, small amphitheater, outdoor fireplace and a striking redwood boardwalk shaded by metal awnings.

The Fuscoe team provided a demolition plan, SWPPP and comprehensive civil plans for Farmers Park and also devised a unique pilot project consisting of a water quality alley in the public right-of way to manage and collect water runoff. In addition to Farmers Park, the Fuscoe team provided a range of engineering and survey/mapping services for all of The Packing District projects, from the Packing House and Packard Building to street infrastructure and parking lots as well as a Brookfield multi-family homes development.
