Santa Monica City Council has asked for additional public input on a final name for the new 6-acre park site which is currently called "Palisades Garden Walk." It is located across from City Hall and is between Ocean Avenue and Main Street, the 10-Freeway and Olympic Drive. The 1-acre site directly in front of City Hall formerly called "Town Square" was given the final name "Ken Genser Square."
The park designed by James Corner Field Operations will resemble an Arroyo with terraced hills, overlooks, interwoven paths, and water features organized around a central path. It will also feature native and locally adapted plants for maximum display, dramatic seasonal change and shapes.
