GRANT HOWALD PARK REHABILITATION PROJECT

 

 Full Concept

ABOUT THIS PROJECT

Grant Howald Park is a 3.1 acre park that has been serving the community since 1954. As the most visited park in Newport Beach, it is important to make sure that this park continues to serve the community at the highest level. In order to meet this standard, it is necessary to rehabilitate our City facilities from time to time. The Grant Howald Park Rehabilitation Project will be focused on upgrading the athletic field for usability throughout the year,  replacing the playground equipment to encourage more integrated play and beautifying the Fifth Avenue frontage.  A preliminary conceptual design is being developed by RJM Design Group, with input from City staff and the Parks, Beaches and Recreation ad hoc committee.  During this conceptual design phase, we look forward to receiving the community’s input to ensure that this project rehabilitates the park with amenities that meet the resident’s expectations and reflects the community’s charm.
