Park to Bay LInk (Park Boulevard)

The City of San Diego, for the last 70 years, has been attempting to establish a pedestrian connection from Balboa Park to the San Diego Bay. That connection has finally taken place. Estrada Land Planning with City of San Diego’s redevelopment arm, the Centre City Development Corporation, and the community of East Village in downtown San Diego, was able to determine that Park Boulevard would be the corridor to make this connection. This corridor follows Park Boulevard from Balboa Park as it continues its way to the Bay through the East Village area of downtown San Diego. This unique urban corridor ranges in width between 33′ to 27′ on the east side and 14′ on the west side. A wide sidewalk with a double row of trees forms the basis of the link. Two new trolley stations were constructed as part of the initial corridor improvements. Estrada Land Planning prepared numerous conceptual designs, moderated and led the community design meetings, prepared photo realistic computer simulations to reinforce the design decisions and made the City Council presentation for the preliminary designs of the project. ELP also prepared the construction documents. The project received an Award of Merit by the American Society of Civil Engineers.
