TUSTIN – Developers offered a nod to history while dedicating a new 6-acre park in the growing community of Greenwood in Tustin Legacy.
The park at the center of Greenwood is named Ron Foell Park, after the cofounder and chairman of the board for Standard Pacific Homes.
Half a century ago, the Irvine-based company built its first community – a 54-home development called Summerfield Homes. Now Standard Pacific is building Greenwood – a 375-home community that will soon welcome its first residents.
“The naming of Ron Foell Park holds tremendous significance as Greenwood in Tustin Legacy is situated just one mile from where Ron Foell and Standard Pacific Homes debuted its first-ever community 50 years ago in 1965,” Mayor Chuck Puckett said in a statement.
Five acres of the park are open to the public. That portion includes a large lawn surrounded by trees, an amphitheater, basketball court, two bocce ball courts, an “adventure zone” with two children’s play structures, 1.4 miles of walking trails and picnic pavilions.
The other acre is The Residents Only Legacy Club, with a clubhouse, covered outdoor living space, resort-style pool and spa, interactive water play area, fire pits, barbeques, restrooms and showers exclusively for Greenwood residents.
Greenwood is being built in four neighborhoods: Sheldon, Huntley, Crawford and Stafford. Prices range from the low $700,000s to the low $1 millions.
The first residents are expected to move into Greenwood in October, Standard Pacific spokeswoman Danielle Tocco said.
Standard Pacific is also expected to officially merge this fall with Ryland Homes, forming the fourth largest homebuilding company in the nation. When that transaction closes, Foel will retire from his position as chairman of Standard Pacific’s board.
