Shelton Park is located at the northeast corner of Bonita and Harvard Avenues
in the heart of the Claremont Village, adjacent to The Claremont Colleges. View map.

This pocket park, which has an old world ambience, is home to many well-planned and impromptu events.
It is also home to one of the city's premiere pieces of public art,
Simple Gifts, a sculpture created by former Claremonter, John Fisher, in 2000-2001.

Our proposal is to add a performance stage which will make Shelton Park even more of an asset
to the community and provide a venue for exciting events in the Village.

Local architect, Paul Wheeler, Wheeler and Wheeler AIA Architects, Inc.,
is lead architect and coordinating the project.
The following are key members of his team:
Ana Aguilar, project manager, Wheeler and Wheeler
Gary Andreasen , Andreasen Engineering
Roger Shervington Geotechnical Engineer
Chi Tang, Structural Engineer
James Taylor, Theatre Professor, Pomona College Lighting and Sound design
James Drummond, Electrical Engineer
Rod Tapp, Landscape Architect
