Civita Park Phase 2 Wins ‘Orchid’ Award

The San Diego Architectural Foundation has honored Civita Park’s Phase 2, with an “Orchid” for landscape architecture during last night’s virtual Orchids & Onions awards ceremony.
Phase 2 encompasses four acres and includes two colorful playgrounds, a picnic grove, restrooms, “Mining Relics Garden,” three themed gardens, a game area with regulation-size bocce, and a shaded event pavilion.
The first phase of Civita Park also earned an Orchid Award for landscape architecture in 2017.
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.
The now completed 14.3-acre City of San Diego neighborhood park is the crown jewel of Civita’s 60 acres of parks, open space and trails. The design of the park was inspired by the topography, history and culture of Mission Valley.
“The Orchids & Onions winners are selected by a panel of top design professional with input from the entire community,” said Marco Sessa, senior vice president of Sudberry Properties, which is developing the 230-acre urban village of Civita. “We couldn’t be more honored,” he said.
“I would particularly like to share these accolades with Glen Schmidt and Nate Magnusson of Schmidt Design Group, the firm that designed the park, and Sudberry Properties’ Mark Radelow,” said Sessa. “Their devotion to the design and creation of Civita Park has made it a very special place for the whole Mission Valley community.”
