Frog Pad Park

Frog Pad Park is a large park in one of Hercules’s New Urbanist neighborhoods along the San Pablo Bay waterfront. PlaceWorks’ design maintains visual access to the park from the adjacent residential areas and incorporates creek and wetland themes while protecting the adjacent riparian habitat areas. As part of the schematic design process, PlaceWorks’ landscape architects and landscape designers considered creative solutions to issues such as links to the surrounding neighborhood, interface with the creek, accessibility, gateway designs, and onsite drainage.
