Public Art

The Santa Cruz County Board of Supervisors established a Percent for Art Program applicable to County construction projects. As a result of the Board's decision, up to 2% of the construction costs for new buildings and parks can be allocated to place public artwork at the site.

History

With partial funding from an Outdoor Education Facilities Grant from California State Parks, County Parks constructed the Felton Discovery County Park at the new Felton Library grounds on Gushee Street in downtown Felton. The park includes a nature trail, two pedestrian bridges over Bull Creek, program and gathering space, interactive play elements, musical instruments, educational and interpretive signage, native and pollinator planting areas, and riparian restoration. The park opened February 22, 2020! County Parks was awarded a Shade Structure Grant from the American Academy of Dermatology. The grant enabled us to build a permanent shade structure to protect our community members.
