We’re thrilled that the State has approved new project funding for John L. Carter Memorial Park in Half Moon Bay.

This hidden gem is located off Main Street near the Pilarcitos Creek riparian corridor. Using the park’s natural contours, we’ve created a new landscaped amphitheater that will be a community hub for music events and festivals hosted by the city and other users such as the Half Moon Bay Shakespeare Company.

Our design includes a new stage and performer support building nestled in an existing redwood grove, along with public restrooms, ticket and concession space, and an outdoor picnic area. A garden terrace will overlook the amenities below, with an accessible path guiding users and patrons into the park.
