Public Art

Juan Ramón Gimeno created the 5' high-fire ceramic sculptural piece, titled "Old Tree." The inner structure of the piece is stoneware, with a surface of textured porcelain and stoneware in neutral colors, mimicking the look of a weathered, fossilized Cypress tree.


Heart of Soquel Plaza was completed in Spring 2015. In 2021, County Parks completed construction and installation of a new pervious concrete multi-use trail from Heart of Soquel Plaza, along Soquel Creek, to the pedestrian bridge behind Soquel Elementary School to Main Street. The project includes the development of an all-access trail, habitat restoration, trail heads, drainage improvements, fencing, interpretive signage and a public art feature. Funding for the project came from the California River Parkways Grant Program!
