Escondido Creek Trail Expansion and Rennovation
The City of Escondido hired RRM Design Group to design the new improvements along 4 miles of the Escondido Creek corridor to create a premiere linear park. The City was awarded $8.5 million from the California Department of Parks & Recreation through the Prop 68 Parks & Water Bond Act, which aims to create new parks and recreation opportunities in underserved communities across the State. Escondido was the only city in San Diego County to receive the full grant amount. RRM is providing remote interactive public outreach and stakeholder meetings to assist the community in the vision of the greenway. RRM is leading the design and construction documents for 4.5 miles of the creek trail and greenway which includes new trails, new connections to the west end of town, bioretention areas, new corridor landscape, pollinator gardens, public art, outdoor fitness stations, and new branding with wayfinding and interpretive signs along the remaining 6 miles of the city premiere greenway through the heart of the city.
