Ricardo Lara Linear Park

Owner:

City of Lynwood


Landscape Architect:

SWA

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.

Project Awards:
