This project included a master plan for Estero Park, a detailed building program for the Isla Vista Community Center and a conceptual cost estimate for its construction. The planning of the park and the community center was a multifaceted, interactive and collaborative community driven process. It included a master plan for Estero Park in which both the expanded park, open space and the outdoor recreational facilities as well as the siting of the community center with sensitivity to the surrounding neighborhood, played an important role. Recreational facilities include a soccer field, basketball courts and a skate park among others. Vehicular access and parking influenced the configuration of the plan. The plan required an extensive biological resources study associated with the preservation of natural flora and fauna habitat at the west end of the park, including detailed guidelines for preservation and remediation of historic oak and eucalyptus groves and indigenous wetlands.
