Land Development :: Parks, Trails, and Open Space
Cathedral City, CA
DEA landscape architects provided master planning, Proposition 84 grant coordination, and construction documents for Ocotillo Park, a 5-acre park in Cathedral City. Working closely with the city appointed grant writer, DEA developed a plan for active recreation facilities while considering the incorporation of sustainable features such as recycled materials, the use of decorative rock and decomposed granite, ‘Smart Irrigation’ techniques, and drought tolerant plant material. The park features playground and picnic areas, walking paths, a ball field with soccer field overlay, skatepark, parking, plaza space and picnic shelters, in addition to fitness stations, a restroom, lighting and signage. DEA also set project control for the aerial mapping effort and prepared a topographic survey.
