The projects listed below are currently in the planning & design or construction phase or have recently been completed by the Parks & Community Services Department:

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 have been extended through Friday, October 25, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. to allow more time for residents to review the park renderings and provide feedback.  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.

For more information about these projects, please contact Anne Marquez, Community Services Supervisor at (530) 757-5626 or via email at amarquez@cityofdavis.org
