Approximate Start Date:

October 2014

Approximate End Date:

Purpose:

To create a truly unique, landmark parks and recreation amenity that combines play and public art. This interactive trail of "pocket parks" is envisioned to ultimately feature 10 stations along the Big Bear Creek Greenbelt.

End Result:
  • Phase I will build the first four "pocket parks"
  • Each will include a 14-foot anamorphic sculpture by Canadian artist Eric Lapointe, inspired by an international landmark (W to E: Statue of Liberty, Neuschwanstein Castle, St. Basil's Cathedral, the Great Sphinx), paired with a play area
  • In Phase I, two of the four stations will include themed climbing structures. The other two will feature Playtop Street interactive surfacing, a physically and mentally stimulating outdoor play area that allows visitors to enjoy a variety of games on a human-sized "gameboard" of lights. CLICK HERE to learn more.
