Your input is wanted to assist with the development of conceptual park designs at two locations, Heritage Park and the undeveloped 2.83 acres at Sunset Crossing. Although funding does not currently exist for either project, these concepts will help identify the elements that meet the needs of the community and establish cost estimates for future budgeting purposes.
Each location has four conceptual design options and associated cost estimates for its completion.
After reviewing the designs for each location, please rank your top THREE options, with #1 being most desired and #3 being least desired. If you have additional comments, please provide feedback in the comment section below each design.
Located at 2900 S. Brea Canyon Road, Heritage Park is a 3.4 acre park with a 3,900 square foot Community Center built in 1993. The existing community center serves programs such as the Tiny Tot program, Summer Day Camp, adult Table Tennis, weekend event rentals, and various other contract classes or community events. The existing facility fixtures, restrooms, and amenities are outdated and need to be addressed to meet ADA compliance. This facility is heavily used by the public and the City seeks design options to retrofit and refurbish the exiting building that will not only address ADA compliance requirements but also promote maintenance efficiency.
In addition, the picnic area (to the east of the community center) and adjoining playground are in need of modern improvements to better meet the needs of the current community and ADA compliance.

Located at 22555 Sunset Crossing Road, the new neighborhood park is Sunset Crossing which totals approximately 2.83 acres located in the northern part of the City adjacent to PONY League (PONY) baseball fields and a YMCA. The site is currently vacant with chain link fencing securing the property. While Sunset Crossing Park is adjacent to the PONY baseball fields, it is important to note that PONY baseball is a privately-run nonprofit organization that utilizes their space for baseball only and is generally not open to the public for daily use.
The Sunset Crossing property was obtained by the City of Diamond Bar from the Diamond Bar Walnut YMCA which is located directly across the street and projects to be regular users of the new park. Sunset Crossing Park will meet a vital need of current residents within a half-mile of the park area that are currently park deficient. The park’s goal is to be designed for all mobility types and ages. The goal of the new park is to create space for leisurely recreational activities of all ages and abilities and is currently not envisioned to accommodate organized athletic events requiring synthetic turf or ball field lighting.
