Johnny Carson Park Revitalization

Burbank, California

Owner: City of Burbank


AHBE led a team of consultants on a $3.7 million infrastructure upgrade and sustainability-focused improvement project for the core of a 17-acre park. The work focused on the restoration of the Little Tujunga Wash Creek, which flows into the Los Angeles River and traverses the park. AHBE conducted numerous community workshops to solicit residents' feedback on the design. The creek is now a destination with enhanced habitat, recreational access, and water quality, as well as new walking paths with parcourse equipment and improved accessibility, bridges crossing the creek, picnic areas, new LED lighting, an expanded children’s play area, new acoustic concert stage, California native plant palette, and reclaimed water irrigation.
