Civic Center Park is a 14-acre, ocean-view site specially designed by renowned landscape architect Peter Walker as an intended sculpture garden for residents and visitors to gather. Events and activities include summer concerts on the lawn, art shows, docent-led sculpture park tours, visits to the dog park, or leisurely walks along the park’s winding trail, appreciating its environmentally-friendly expanse of native plant life.
As home to City Hall, City administrative offices, and the Central Branch of the city’s public library system, the Civic Center is the heart of Newport Beach. This exhibition has consistently delighted and enriched visitors with the works of world-class artists both local and national.
