    Orange County Great Park, the first great metropolitan park of the 21st Century as well as the focal point for redevelopment of the former 4,700-acre El Toro Marine Corps Air Station in Irvine, California. The Great Park, which will be almost twice the size of New York’s Central Park, will include extensive natural areas and open space in addition to recreational and cultural uses. The Great Park has direct freeway and rail access, making it easily accessible for more than 10,000,000 Southern California residents. The Great Park’s award-winning Master Plan features cutting edge environmental design features that will set a new standard for sustainable park design and urban planning. Sustainability, the wise and conservative use of energy, water, and other scarce resources, is central to the Park’s 21st Century design. Cutting-edge technologies will make the park sustainable, demonstrating eco-friendly design and construction techniques. The Park will generate and demonstrate cutting edge ideas and technologies and will inspire people to make changes in their own lives, making a profound impact far beyond the Park’s boundaries. These goals include habitat restoration, renewable energy generation, water quality management, transportation, and more. Basically the few things that make it special are its size, accessibility, and most importantly is urban-sustainable design.
