The public will be able to view the revised design for two proposed parks at Santa Monica’s Civic Center area at a community meeting Saturday, Nov. 13.
The meeting is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. in the Santa Monica High School cafeteria, 601 Pico Blvd. Following a presentation by architect James Corner and the park design team, participants will have an opportunity to share comments and suggestions. A joint meeting of the Recreation & Parks and Planning commissions will be held in conjunction with this public workshop.
The revised schematic design is based on feedback received from community members, commissioners and City Council members after reviewing three preliminary design concepts in September and October.
As envisioned in the city’s Civic Center Specific Plan, the new parks will be located directly in front of and across the street from Santa Monica City Hall, 1685 Main Street. Officials say the parks are intended to provide a vital connection between the Civic Center area, the Santa Monica Pier and Palisades Park.

Visitors to the workshop are encouraged to enter the campus through Fourth Street, Sixth and Pico or Seventh and Michigan gates. Validated parking will be available in the Civic Center Parking Structure, 333 Civic Center Drive.
