The Central Park Plan turns the largest green space in Downtown Glendale into a vibrant focal core. Central Park is for everyone and provides a front yard to the Central Library, the Adult Recreation Center, the proposed Armenian American Museum, but most importantly, it will be a stand alone destination designed for public engagement.
Central Park should accommodate numerous programs and features that will combine to make this a dynamic space available to a divers group of users every day of the year. It will reach out through a system of inviting paseos that will connect it to the surrounding neighborhoods and beyond.
Prior to preparing preliminary conceptual plans, two outreach workshops were held to involve the residents, businesses and other stakeholders from the Glendale Community. The workshops sought public input in addressing existing needs and potential opportunities in the development of preliminary concept plans for this urban open space.
