Santa Monica opens Tongva Park by James Corner Field Operations
Positioned between the Santa Monica Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, Santa Monica occupies a unique place in the Southern California landscape. The city recently got another feather in its cap with the “soft” opening of Tongva park, a $42.3 million, 6.2-acre park located between City Hall, Ocean Boulevard, and the western terminus of the 10 Freeway.
“We heard that Santa Monica is a casual place, tuned into environmental issues: their landscape, the ocean, the adjacent mountains,” said Sarah Weidner Astheimer, lead designer and project manager during the design phase of the project. “The community did not want a recreational park, filled with tennis courts and soccer fields. “This is a city-scaled garden for the community.”
