In a spectacular setting overlooking the charming towns of Brea and Fullerton, two of the nation’s premier homebuilders, Shea Homes and Standard Pacific Homes, are bringing a vision called Blackstone to life. Spanning approximately 800 acres, much of which is preserved as natural open space, the residents of Blackstone residential community enjoy neighborhood parks, a recreation center with pool and spa, and a children’s water activities center. Land Concern was responsible for helping craft the overall project’s outdoor experience from the streetscapes, to linear parks, entry monuments, and the community Recreation Center.
Blackstone puts outdoor enjoyment just steps from every home, filled with potential for families who love to live and play right at home. The community’s fun-filled recreation center includes a junior Olympic pool and spa, and kids can splash away at the recreation center’s water activities center and wading pool. In addition, there are six intimate pocket parks including one with a tot lot. Wildcatters Park, is a 14-acre City of Brea park where family fun can range from picnicking under a tree to maintaining a vibrant active lifestyle. With a charming gazebo as its centerpiece, the park offers a variety of athletic pursuits including baseball, basketball, tee ball and football. It will join 15 other community parks, including a popular sports park and a 12-acre historical park showcasing Brea’s rich heritage of community and enrichment of its citizens.
