From abandoned parking lots to lush rolling hills, gardens, and meadows, Tongva Park is the new green heart of Santa Monica. Developed under the scrutiny of urban foresters and eclectic horticulturalists, the resultant planting design offers a model of sustainability for similar projects--one that carefully balances environment and culture.

Learning Objectives:

  • Determine the management process for large park-planting designs from aesthetic, cultural, and environmental perspectives.
  • Understand how sustainable landscapes can incorporate both native and non-native plants and multi-zone landscapes.
  • Learn effective design approaches to establish large-scale Mediterranean meadows and create multi-storied landscape habitats within urban environments.
  • Explore the challenges, changes, and opportunities encountered during construction.
