Sacramento Delta Heritage Trail Concept

Summer 2016

Internship at CA Delta Protection Commission

West Sacramento, CA

Walnut Grove is one the last remaining rural Japantowns. Half a mile away, the town of Locke is the last remaining rural Chinatown.

 

While mostly intact, historical signage is

un-engaging and many of the town's stories are untold.

 

Working with an environmental planner and heritage tourism specialist, I helped develop a conceptual plan for a recreational heritage trail.

Sketches for a sidewalk widening proposal, boardwalk feasibility study, and a series of artistic nodes to teach people about history along the trail:
