The City Council is trying to figure out how to develop the 233-acre Cultural Terrace, the final major piece of the Orange County Great Park where the city’s considering an amphitheater, a lake, a library, museums and most recently a water park.
Many entities — such as children’s and fire museums and a rafting and kayaking white water park — are lobbying to get their share of space at the 1,300-acre park, which could match the size of Balboa Park in San Diego. The council is tasked with deciding which of those entities should get how much space and what types of land deals to offer, while figuring out how to pay for the development and maintenance of the park.
