Arrowhead Grove is a service-rich community in the City of San Bernardino that supports educational attainment, economic mobility, and improved health through education, wellness and social service programs.
National CORE has created a neighborhood that extends learning beyond the classroom and intentionally blurs the boundaries that separate school and home, indoors and outdoors, nature and technology, young and old.
The different phases of Arrowhead Grove are connected by a series of outdoor spaces that promote healthy living, music and lifelong learning through a multicultural lens.
Through an outdoor network of recreational amenities, residents will encounter a Community, Health and Success Center, outdoor classrooms, community gardens, flexible gathering spaces, edible landscape, celebrations of natural processes, moments of inspirational art and musical expressions.
The landscape architecture of Arrowhead Grove has been designed to encourage lifelong learning through:
Music and Play
STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) concepts
The implementation of these themes has been carefully assembled to reflect the cultures of the neighborhood, including Vietnamese and Chinese herbs in the edible landscaping and community gardens; the Caribbean drum located in the play area; and native plants and citrus trees throughout the development that are indigenous to the region.
