Cultural Arts District Park Awarded ASLA CA Sierra Chapter 2018 Merit Award
Cultural Arts District Park received the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) California Sierra Chapter 2018 Merit Award. Cultural Arts District Park is a unique and technologically advanced ode to the diverse artistic & cultural community of Fresno. Designed to foster creativity, support healthy living, and provide a gathering place that residents can cherish, this space is a true jewel. To design the .77 acre site to its full potential required carefully placing programming elements. Playground elements were functionally linked and meticulously selected to create a multi-sensory experience and support social inclusion. The vision was for the community’s presence to be magnified through the artistic expression of diffused, park patron interactive color-changing lighting. Sensors respond to sound and to movement of objects with varying heat signatures. Lights can also be manually operated by a DJ in order to create an immersive musical event experience.
