Upcoming Projects

Enhanced Recreation Area

Project Description

This project is part of the Campus Life Project. At the back of the Malibu campus, Marie Canyon contains the University's largest debris basin (for flood control) and a student recreation field.

During this project, we will relocate the debris basin within Marie Canyon. We will also move soil from the Drescher Balance Pad to prepare that site for a temporary construction staging lot. These changes also prepare the canyon area for an updated and improved student recreation field, to be built at a later date.


Phase I: Summer 2016 - Winter 2016

Phase II: Spring 2017 - Fall 2017

New Enhanced Recreation Field open for campus use Spring 2018.

Impacted Areas*

  • Student Recreation Field
  • Terrace Parking Lot
  • Haul Route for dirt will be from the lower intersection of Benton Way (Formerly Via Pacifica) and Catalina, to the terrace parking lot.

*Not every space, and not every portion of each space will be affected at the same time, or to the same degree. This list will be updated on an ongoing basis during the project.
