This 6,500 square foot park was developed by The Trust for Public Land to serve the severely park-poor neighborhood of Maywood, California. EPTDESIGN worked with The Trust for Public Land and Breen Engineering to realize the community’s vision and wishes for the park. Planted with native Los Angeles River plants, the park features walkways, seating areas and brightly colored mosaics by local artist, Jolino Beserra. Low-impact design treats all stormwater on site before it drains to the river. A water play stream, small play forms, boulder seating and picnic tables give parents and families places to play and socialize. Though small in physical stature, Pine Avenue Park plays a significant role in improving the quality of life for this community.
