The Orange County Great Park Board has approved a comprehensive park design submitted by the Great Park Design Studio, giving the green light for the construction process to begin.

The project includes a sports park, a wildlife corridor with a lake, agua chinon, upper and lower canyons, agriculture elements and many other features identified by a variety of stakeholders throughout the design process.

"I have said many times that one does not build a park, one grows a park," says Ken Smith, the chief designer of the Orange County Great Park.

He adds, "The design allows us to begin growing elements of the park right now and create additional elements in the future with full confidence that everything will fit together and create a wonderful experience for park visitors."

In keeping with the growing trend in architecture and design to promote green development, the new complex will feature sustainable infrastructure, such as water reclamation and natural water treatment systems, and make provisions for renewable energy generation.

Visitors will also be able to take advantage of non-polluting park shuttles and connections to mass transit.
