The concept behind the Village of Northpark relied heavily on a couple simple ideas: create a walkable self-contained community, provide an entire spectrum of recreational opportunities, and make a high density apartment community feel like a cozy neighborhood. A series of central greens, courts and small gardens populate each of Northpark’s six neighborhoods. Eucalyptus-lined paseos lead through the neighborhoods out to a central park for a pedestrian scale to the community. Some full of energy and opportunities to exercise, others tranquil and calm, each of the thirteen park spaces contribute to a strong sense of home.
