Building upon the momentum of Reimagine Garden Grove and other recent efforts, the Garden Grove Active Downtown Plan is a project that aims to create a safer, more connected, and more active downtown Garden Grove community. The City envisions downtown as a unique and inclusive place where Garden Grove's diverse residents and visitors can easily walk, bike, and use alternative modes of transportation. Contributing to a dynamic downtown environment and economy, the Garden Grove Active Downtown Plan will identify mobility strategies to increase both regional and local connectivity to the downtown core.

Project Goals and Objectives

Connectivity: Create better and improved connections to get to and from downtown Garden Grove
Accessibility: Help people get to the places they most want to in downtown by developing a supportive culture for walking, biking, and other emerging alternative modes of transportation
Arts & Downtown Culture: Create a more vibrant downtown that integrates public art and spaces through the context and cultures of Garden Grove's community
Community Health: Provide opportunities for the community to utilize downtown parks, off-street paths, routes, and public spaces through walking, biking, and other alternative modes of transportation
Safety: Improve the overall safety of people walking and biking to, from, and within downtown Garden Grove
