Farnham Martin Park and Fountain Refurbishment

Farnham Martin Park is an iconic landmark for our City.  It was built in honor of Farnham B. Martin who “was the superintendent of parks from the beginning and was responsible for the selected variety of trees and shrubbery and growing of the stock in the Project Nursery at Lunada Bay.”1 He was a beloved member of the community who had contributed to the beauty of the City we enjoy today. 

Over the years, the Farnham Martin Park has been a gathering place for residents for summer concerts and other events.  It is a beautiful companion to the historical Malaga Cove Library.  In recent years the function and beauty of this area has been neglected.
