City Hall Median

The Civic Center area in Malaga Cove houses the City Hall, Police Department, Fire Department and PV Homes Association in one complex. In 2019, the PVE Foundation worked with local landscapers, the Parklands Committee and the City of PVE to create a more beautiful City Median area.

With this being a highly visible area of our community, it was determined that this would be a good first project to introduce the work of the Foundation to the Community.  We were proud to accomplish this work during the COVID shutdown and after a  long drought. This area now provides provide color, beauty and a drought-friendly solution to this neglected area.
