Colony Park Water Park

Owner: Brookfield Homes

Artist: Haddad Design

General Contractor: Brookfield Homes

As a partnership between the City of Anaheim and Brookfield Homes, this public urban park was designed to embrace the city’s historic roots for the enjoyment of current and future residents of Anaheim. The park features a small citrus grove, covered picnic areas and playground area, as well as a watercourse that runs through the park. The park was also one of the attractions featured in the city’s 2010 “Art in Public Places” art walk.

The craftsmen at Shaw & Sons were fantastic to work with, from concept design to final construction. The level of detail and oversight required to execute this artwork was matched by Shaw at all phases of construction, including multiple color samples, suggestions for cost savings, and collaborating to coordinate joint layout. As artists, we could not be happier with the results Shaw & Sons achieved in constructing this distinctive public realm.
