Playground Renovation Projects - PlayCore and Game Time Grant - NEW!
The City of Davis recently announced that it is one of several cities in California selected to receive a grant sponsored through the California Park & Recreation Society (CPRS), PlayCore and Game Time. The $147,000 grant is part of a $2 million statewide healthy initiative and will help align research based best practices to create high quality play and recreation environments.
The grant will be used toward equipment replacement at the following playgrounds: Cedar, El Macero, NorthStar Mini, Oak Grove, Redwood, Village and Willowcreek Parks. Many of these playgrounds have not been updated in over 20 years, and require updated play features on more recent play philosophies. In addition, adult fitness apparatus will be added to El Macero and Village Parks. Construction of the new playgrounds is anticipated to take place from January to March 2020, pending weather conditions.
The City is currently seeking feedback on the proposed projects and has created online survey links for each park. The online surveys will remain active through Monday, October 21, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. In addition, outreach to the neighborhoods closest to the selected playgrounds will be conducted via Davis Neighbors Night Out gatherings and park site visits will begin the week of October 14-18.
In addition to the online surveys, the public may also provide comments at the upcoming Recreation & Park Commission meeting scheduled for Wednesday, October 16 beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Chambers, 23 Russell Blvd. For more information about these projects, please contact Anne Marquez, Community Services Supervisor at (530) 757-5626 or via email at email@example.com
