The Crocker Art Museum is moving forward with their plan to transform Crocker Park into a public, art-focused gathering place. The project’s lead architect, Seattle-based Olson Kundig, will partner with San Francisco-based landscape architects SURFACEDESIGN INC to carry out an innovative design.

Located just north of the Museum’s front door, Crocker Park will seamlessly integrate with Crocker’s existing buildings, while also creating refreshing art experiences for the community. This $40 million development project will include a vibrant city center with improved visitor amenities and parking.

Crocker Park will soon transform into a highly engaging space where the Museum’s mission of using art to connect people to the world around them can unfold. The Park’s groundbreaking is tentatively scheduled for fall 2020.

Sacramento is a city on the rise, and the Crocker has played a critical role in elevating our reputation nationally. This is an extraordinary opportunity for the City of Sacramento and the Crocker Art Museum to collaborate on another transformational public project that will strengthen civic pride,” said Mayor Darrell Steinberg.
