Crystal Cove is an award-winning master-planned community on the Newport Coast, inspired by the historic estates of Santa Barbara and Palos Verdes. Streetscapes are characterized by stone entry monuments, broad avenues lit by lamp posts, and an abundance of trees. Among the most notable landmarks is the entry pavilion, with a sweeping tree-lined drive that leads visitors through the grand entrance. The highly detailed wrought-iron entry gates create a visual metaphor of the natural elements with native birds, flowers, and shells. The community’s park – Ocean Garden Park – features plantings echoing a natural estuary, a large open lawn, and paved walks and benches that take advantage of the ocean views.
