Carr Lake Recreation, Open Space & Restoration

Big Sur Land Trust spearheads a transformative initiative in Salinas by purchasing 73 acres within the Carr Lake basin. BFS Landscape Architect is a partner in the master plan of this visionary project, which aims to establish a 6-acre park and open space in the heart of Salinas. The neighborhood park will offer a range of facilities, such as playgrounds, walking paths, and picnic areas, fostering community engagement. Simultaneously, 67 acres of land will be meticulously restored to a riparian freshwater marsh and upland habitat, focusing on enhancing water quality and flood conveyance. The public will be able to access the wetlands through a recreational trail loop system. This project, shaped through extensive community input, promises to be a natural sanctuary and recreational haven for all residents.
