Park Improvement Projects

Investing in our Parks!

The renovation of the City's parks will be completed in three (3) phases in Measure S. Each phase will include a series of park projects that will have the same schedule. During construction, some parks will be completely closed or partially closed. The parks that are not in construction will be open to the public.
