Using the master plan developed by the Cosumnes Community Services District, this 7.8-acre neighborhood park incorporates active and passive family recreational opportunities for all age groups. Amenities include soccer fields, skate park elements, basketball courts, an adult fitness area, picnic area with shade structures and barbecues, children’s play areas, an interactive water play feature with a celestial theme, jogging paths and a meditation space with a reflexology path. The meditation and reflexology area relate to the “Five Elements” or Wu Xing in traditional Chinese philosophy which are Metal, Wood, Water, Fire and Earth. To promote the universal use of the park, a fully accessible path and seating areas punctuate the space allowing users to benefit from the aesthetic and meditative elements.
