CPRS 2020 Award of Excellence
The Hayward Community Garden Phase 1 Improvement project has been awarded a California Parks and Recreation Society (CPRS) 2020 Award of Excellence in Design – Park Planning.
This project provides for the development of a master plan and construction of Phase 1 improvements for the community garden site located at Whitman Street and Berry Avenue.
A community meeting was held at the site on Wednesday, September 28, 2017 to review the garden concept plan.
Phase 1 Improvements
The Phase 1 Improvements include 70 garden plots with irrigation, raised beds, a small orchard, shade structure to accommodate outdoor classes, produce counter, seed library, demonstration garden, storage shed, compost, small greenhouse, pathways, and fencing and gates. A zone for community socializing will feature a picnic area with barbeques, “kiwi tunnel”, and a natural play area with art and a mural. The Phase 1 Improvements were completed in fall 2019.
