5 Coves Northern Extension​



Anaheim Coves will be extended north from Lincoln Avenue to Frontera Street to expand the City of Anaheim’s natural, transportation and recreational resources for this part of Anaheim. This project was identified as a key opportunity in the Anaheim Outdoors Connectivity Plan
and required the approval of the Orange County Water District (OCWD); the Orange County Flood Control District (OCFCD); and Southern California Edison (SCE). This project includes 11 acres of native landscape, almost one mile of class 1 bike path with a soft decomposed granite trail running parallel to the bike trail, a children’s nature garden and demonstration area near Frontera Street, interpretive signage, and amenities such as drinking fountains, benches, trash cans, and dog waste stations.

The City has received two grants for the design and implementation of this project: $832,000 from the Active Transportation Program (ATP) through Cal-trans for the bike path; and $902,000 from the Urban Greening for Sustainable Communities Grant Program through the California Natural Resources Agency for the installation of native landscape and interpretation.

This segment will provide a vital connection to Anaheim Coves and the Santa Ana Regional Trail, and will also expand community access to an area that was previously closed
