Top billings for Marsh Park
October 10, 2016
Melendrez wins top honors at ASLA’s SoCal Design Awards for Marsh Park, a former glass factory turned park. A robust yet compact footprint uses native ecology to create a vibrant green space inclusive of an arroyo and river marsh system used to treat urban run off before pollutants enter the river ecology. Though discrete, the landscape renders a vibrant environment connecting visitors to bike ways and the Los Angeles River, transforming a derelict site into a prized neighborhood park space and access point.
