Western Sector Development at The Orange County Great Park
Phase One (2010–2012)
The $65.5 million Western Sector Park Development Plan encompasses more than 200 acres of the Orange County Great Park. The plan is designed to build park space that is diverse in use and appropriate to the funds available, resulting in more than 100 acres of active park space.
