Reeder Ranch Park

Montclair, CA

The Reeder Ranch is one of the last remaining citrus groves in cities that line the San Gabriel Mountains. The 1-acre vacant lot adjacent to the citrus grove and historic ranch house provided the perfect opportunity to bring a new public park to the park poor neighborhood of Montclair. Working directly with the City of Montclair to build upon the feedback from their community outreach, the design takes inspiration from the site’s orthogonal citrus rows and breaks the park’s programming into distinct areas with the 2,500 sf. community building being the centralized focal point. Other park amenities include a nature inspired playground, picnic shelter, learning garden, outdoor fitness equipment, flexible event lawn and a fitness loop suitable for all ages and abilities.
