The San Diego Architectural Foundation has honored Civita Park, the crown jewel of Civita, with an “Orchid” during last night’s Orchids & Onions awards ceremony at the U.S. Grant Hotel in Downtown San Diego.
Orchids & Onions is the only interactive, community-based program geared towards raising awareness and encouraging practical discourse in response to San Diego’s built environment, according to the foundation’s website.
Civita Park incorporates ideas from hundreds of local residents collected during a series of public meetings and workshops.
The park is designed to create a central green spine through the center of the community, linking Serra Mesa to the San Diego River Valley. Trails connect the park to all neighborhoods in Civita, encouraging residents to increase their activity levels and social interaction.
The topography affords the park stunning views and the ability to separate uses within one facility, offering a variety of individual and group activity areas and quiet places for reflection and relaxation.
Civita is honored to be a recipient of this prestigious award!
