Ishihara Park replaced a two-block long parking lot along Exposition Blvd. in Santa Monica, CA.  The park provides a visual and environmental buffer between residents and the expo maintenance facility.


Shaw & Sons provided Craftsmen Specification Combined Granite for the beige walkways.  It is composed of integral colored concrete with surface seeded sand and aggregate for durability.  Engraved board-formed walls add interest and convey the park namesake history.
