Crawford Canyon Park and Crawford Canyon Road Sidewalk Extension Project

The County is proposing to develop the Crawford Canyon Park and Crawford Canyon Road Sidewalk Extension Project. The proposed Crawford Canyon Park is a 2.5-acre neighborhood park located at the northwest corner of Newport Avenue and Crawford Canyon Road situated in North Tustin, an unincorporated community in the County.

Recreational amenities and features of Crawford Canyon Park are anticipated to include a quarter-mile walkway, pathways, foot bridges, two playgrounds/natural play areas for children, exercise stations, picnic tables, benches, a drinking fountain, a bioswale and bioretention basin, landscape berms aligned with trees and natural rolling lawn areas.  Crawford Canyon Park would not include barbeques or restroom facilities.

A paved surface parking lot with 11 vehicular parking spaces for the Park would be provided onsite with vehicular access from Newport Avenue for both northbound and southbound travel. A deceleration lane would be constructed for southbound travel on Newport Avenue that would allow a right turn into the parking lot of Crawford Canyon Park. The striped center median would be modified to allow a left turn into Crawford Canyon Park.

The proposed improvements of the Sidewalk Extension include approximately 630 feet of sidewalk construction along the north side of Newport Avenue beginning across from Hyde Park Drive proceeding easterly and approximately 815 feet of sidewalk construction along the west side of Crawford Canyon Road from the northeasterly end of the Park Site to Country Haven Lane. 

Additional associated proposed improvements include decomposed granite walkways, pavement reconstruction, driveways, curb ramps, curb/gutter, retaining walls/slough walls, drainage inlet modifications and features, utility relocations and adjustments, traffic pole replacement, pedestrian push button relocation and adjustments to pull boxes at the intersection of Crawford Canyon Road and Newport Avenue.
