Ricardo Lara Linear Park
City of Lynwood
SWA's design transformed a barren and unutilized freeway adjacent right of way into a safe and vibrant community resource. Ricardo Linear Park remedies some of the negative impacts of the freeway and restores a sense of ownership for the residents of City of Lynwood.
The pedestrian walkways are hand-seeded with a vivid blend of orange glass in integrally colored concrete.
