Civic Park is an award-winning 12-acre mixed-use development located within walking distance of Cupertino Civic Center and the Main Library. The conceptual plan for Civic Park added new medical offices, commercial offices, retail, and residential units. A high-density grid layout creates a viable, pedestrian-friendly environment, while an oval-shaped park at the center of the development acts as a ‘green heart’ for the community. Heritage oaks and redwoods are preserved across the landscape of the Park. Using permeable pavers and other environmentally sensitive techniques for mitigating stormwater, Civic Park itself becomes a bio-basin during rainstorms.
