Garden Grove Active Downtown Plan

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.
