edison park conceptual plan
HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA
Originally built in the 1970's, the Edison Community Park was developed on top of a county landfill. After many years, the park has begun to settle due to natural geotechnical settling on top of the landfill. This has caused walkways to buckle, uneven foundation in sports facilities, and ponding of water during rain seasons. RJM Design Group was selected to work with the Huntington Beach community to identify how the park can evolve, while preserving the much-loved natural elements, trees, sports facilities, and playgrounds for future generations. Through a massive community outreach campaign, a new master plan vision by the residents was developed. The new plan will work around the landfill constraints and enhance the natural evolution of the urban forest in concert with active recreation features.
